AS Roma link up with Man United over full-back signing


Italian Serie A outfit AS Roma are reported to be in contact with Man United over the signature of full-back Diogo Dalot, according to reports in Italy.

Diogo Dalot has gone down the pecking order in the manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has only featured in one game since the restart of last season and it is expected to continue. This is the reason why he will have to leave the club for a new challenge.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will prefer Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Timothy Fosu-Mensah at the right full-back and does not have any plan for Diogo Dalot for the new season.

Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan have earlier made an attempt to secure the service of Diogo Dalot on a loan deal but from all indications, they have been beaten by AS Roma.

Italian outlet Tutto Mercato reports that AS Roma have touched base with the Red Devils over a potential move for Diogo Dalot and they will have to agree on a deal Man United.

The Red Devils will be happy to cash in from the sale of Diogo Dalot as they are in need of cash to be able to sanction other deals before the end of the summer transfer window.
