After returning from his season-long loan spell at AC Milan, Diogo Dalot saw his playing time restricted at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The Norwegian preferred Aaron Wan-Bissaka for the right-back position, forcing the 22-year-old for a place on the bench.

United parted ways with Solskjaer and have brought in Ralf Rangnick as the interim manager until the end of the season. The Portugal international has made four starts in all competitions and two of them came after the ex-Cardiff City manager’s departure.

Rangnick preferred Dalot in his first league tie and with Wan-Bissaka picking up an injury against Young Boys on Wednesday, the former is likely to have prominence under the German.

This, however, has not stopped the Serie A side from looking at the Old Trafford fullback.

According to Calciomercato, José Mourinho’s side ‘insist’ on the ex-Porto man as their ‘interest is always strong’. It’s claimed the Giallorossi are ‘offering’ a loan with right of redemption set at €15m.

Another report from the same website explain Roma chief Tiago Pinto ‘must necessarily operate on a low-cost market’ to please the manager.

One of the positions Mourinho wants to strengthen in January is the right side of the defence, and Dalot is the main target and his ‘name is the most clicked’ on Pinto’s phone.

They seemingly just won’t give up.
