Diogo Dalot is keen to turn his loan move to AC Milan from Man United into a permanent deal this summer.

The young left-back, who arrived at Old Trafford during Jose Mourinho’s reign in 2018, failed to prove his mettle under the Portuguese gaffer’s successor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Subsequently, Dalot was shipped off to AC Milan on a season-long loan in the last summer transfer window.

The 22-year-old has done reasonably well under Stefano Pioli in Italy. He was even given a chance to feature against his parent club in the Europa League in March.

As such, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato (via the Sun), suggests the Portuguese defender would prefer to remain in Serie A.

Further, United are expected to set an asking price of around €15m to allow Dalot’s departure. If Milan clinch a Champions League spot, they’ll be in a rosy financial position to secure his services on a permanent basis.

Interestingly, if Dalot gets his way and manages to extend his stay in Italy, he would get a chance to face Mourinho in Serie A next season. The former Spurs manager has agreed to take over at the helm of AS Roma.
