Man United player Diogo Dalot is currently on loan with Italian Serie A outfit AC Milan and may never return to the club again.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the Serie A giants have concluded to keep him at the club on a permanent basis as his services are still needed.

Diogo Dalot was receiving interests from PSG and Everton as they were interested in having him on a permanent deal but the Red Devils refused only to give their nod to a season-long loan deal with AC Milan in the summer.

Popular transfer journalist, Fabrizio Romano has revealed that the loan deal for Diogo Dalot did not include an option to permanently buy as loan deals can also include a clause for the buying club to take the player on a particular fee.

However, Man United expect the Portuguese full-back to return to England after this season with the Rossoneri to continue at Old Trafford but that might not happen with the latest developments.

Dalot has enjoyed his stay with the Italian Serie A outfit. He has a memorable debut against Sparta Prague in the Europa League as he scored a goal and handed one assist in the game. There is no doubt that he is happy at the San Siro and will not seek a return to England next summer.

Nevertheless, talks are expected to be held between the two clubs to discuss the possibility having the Portuguese on a permanent basis and the terms for the deal but that might not happen now until the end of his stay in Italy.

Diogo Dalot is still a young player of 21 years which means he has many more tears to play and a glittering prospect either in Italy or in the English Premier League.

Howbeit, Man United have signed Alex Telles which means they have got options, along with Luke Shaw. The possibility of allowing Diogo Dalot to leave the club is high as long as an attractive offer is submitted to Old Trafford. The
