Italian outlet Calcio Mercato features today an interview with Carlos Gonçalves, who’s the agent of Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot.

Currently at AC Milan, the fullback scored at the weekend against Hellas Verona, and that meant a lot for a player who’s fighting for his place at the Serie A side.

“I spoke to him yesterday, he was very happy, for the game and for the goal scored. It was very important for the team and for him. It’s always nice to play well and get one in the net, as it did in Verona,” Carlos Gonçalves told Calcio Mercato.

“When he came to Milan, he knew he was arriving at a great club for history and tradition, one of the best in the world. For this, he chose the Rossoneri. And when you play for a team like this, it’s normal to compete for the Scudetto. There’s an excellent relationship with Ibrahimovic and the other teammates, he’s happy in Milan.”

Regarding the upcoming Europa League tie against Manchester United, the agent says this will be a special match for Dalot.

“Thursday will be a very special match for him. Right now he’s a Milan player, on loan from Manchester United, but he wants to do well for his current club. If he had played with another team, it wouldn’t have been different anyway.”

For the past couple of months, there’s been several stories regarding Dalot’s future at Milan. The Italian media is still uncertain about the club’s intention to sign him on a permanent move, and Carlos Gonçalves claims this isn’t a subject to be negotiated now.

“At the right time, this will also be discussed. He has to train at his best and take advantage of every opportunity, the rest will be seen. There’s no contact now, but it’s normal. The focus is all on the field. Later we will talk about it and we’ll see what happens.”

Since joining Milan on a loan deal last summer, Dalot has made 20 appearances for the Rossoneri. He’s been an option for the team on both sides of the pitch, and that seems to be his main quality which would convince them of going for a permanent deal.
