The general slant in Italy on Diogo Dalot returning to AC Milan this summer has been that Manchester United are set against another loan for the player, and if he’s to leave this summer they want it to be on a permanent basis.

That would bring in money and help the Premier League club go for their own targets at the end of the window, including Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier.

On Sunday we covered claims from the Milan media which stated Dalot’s situation could change in the final days of the market, and that’s what the Rossoneri were waiting for.

Milan Live have it differently.

They state that Manchester United ‘do not want to sell’ Dalot, and that would see AC Milan look at other targets instead. One of those would be Real Madrid’s Álvaro Odriozola, and the plan would be to sign him on loan and have a right of redemption, so the deal could be made permanent should the Serie A club be impressed.

This goes against much of the reporting recently, and until there’s further claims on this matter it doesn’t seem like Dalot to Milan is completely over.
