As AC Milan continue to look for a way to keep Diogo Dalot from Manchester United, it looks like the Rossoneri now have a response from the Red Devils.
According to Sky Sport (via Milan News 24), the Premier League side now accept that the fullback stays in Italy on loan with an option to buy.
However, there’s one condition. Manchester United want a fee of between €5m and €6m for the loan, just so they don’t end up empty-handed like it happened following the player’s spell at Milan last season.
The report doesn’t say what the Rossoneri’s answer will be, although it’s already claimed if the Serie A side refuse to make an agreement, they’d go for Real Madrid’s Álvaro Odriozola as an alternative.
Dalot wasn’t a regular starter at Milan last season, but the fact he could play on both sides of the pitch made him a useful player for their squad, and that’s why he made 33 appearances.
It’s been a long time since the Italian media reorted the Rossoneri would try to find a new deal for the fullback, but it now looks like the Red Devils are not willing to repeat the agreement from last year.
