Erik ten Hag‘s future plans include Diogo Dalot, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Manchester United is interested in extending Diogo Dalot’s contract.
According to Fabrizio Romano, the Portuguese are crucial to Erik ten Hag’s plans, and the club is considering extending his contract for another year.
“The contract of Diogo Dalot can be extended for another season.”
The 23-year-old’s future at United seemed bleak under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who preferred playing Aaron Wan-Bissaka instead.
Romano claims many clubs were interested in signing Dalot in the summer of 2021 – Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, and AC Milan.
However, the 23-year-old decided to stay and fight for his place at United.
“Summer 2021, Dortmund and Atletico Madrid, also AC Milan were really pushed to sign Diogo Dalot. But Manchester United said No — Dalot wanted to STAY and wanted to fight for his place in Manchester United.”
Dalot has been one of United’s standout players this season.
Not only has his defensive positioning improved drastically, but also his passing.
Dalot is crucial to Ten Hag’s build-up from the back and is one of United’s best ball-progressing players.
Fans will be hoping that he can carry his performances towards the busy part of the season
