Last season, Diogo Dalot was loaned by Manchester United to Milan.
The Portuguese defender couldn’t find a place in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad, who decided to almost solely rely on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, and so a move was organised to help the youngster develop some more.
While he wasn’t a regular starter under Stefano Pioli, he did get used a fair amount, as the Italian manager made the most of Dalot’s versatility, capable of playing either down the right or as a backup for Théo Hernández.
The loan was a dry one, meaning no fee was attached to it, and so the 22-year-old was expected return to Old Trafford at the end of the season.
However, there have been signs that Milan would like to keep him longer, and talk of the loan being renewed has surfaced.
Down his end, Milan News are reporting that Dalot is ‘pushing’ to stay at the Serie A side, but ‘for now’, Manchester United ‘aren’t open to a new loan’.
It’s stated the English club want to ‘cash in’ from a potential sale of the Portuguese full-back, and the two clubs ‘will continue to negotiate to try and find an agreement’.
