Everton eye swoop as £18m Man Utd defender asks for escape route

Manchester United will allow defender Diogo Dalot to leave this summer with Everton readying a move, according to a report.

Right-back Dalot signed for United under former boss Jose Mourinho in 2018, making 25 appearances in his debut season.

However, injuries and the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka last summer have meant Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has restricted the Portugal Under-21 international to 11 outings this term.

Dalot still has three years left on his contract but, according to Todofichajes, he has asked for a move elsewhere.

The 21-year-old has reportedly become frustrated at his lack of game time, which he feels will not improve.

As such, Everton have allegedly come forward with firm interest. The Blues will lose on-loan Djibril Sidibe after passing up on the opportunity to make his move from Monaco last summer permanent.

Toffees boss Carlo Ancelotti is an admirer of Dalot and feels there is huge potential to work with.

United, meanwhile, will let the player leave if the likes of Everton can meet their €20million (£18.2million) exit fee.

Dalot has only played four times in the Premier League this season, making just one start in a Boxing Day win over Newcastle.

 

 

He only lasted 60 minutes that day, with his other appearances in the competition totalling six minutes.

Elsewhere, Dalot has featured four times in the FA Cup, appearing on a further three occasions in the Europa League.

Indeed, with Wan-Bissaka’s firm grip on the right-back role, United‘s Europa League campaign may be Dalot’s best bet for game time.

The Red Devils play LASK in the second leg of their last-16 tie next month, having won the first leg 5-0.

Elsewhere, another report claims Jadon Sancho many not be the only player to arrive at United this summer.

The Borussia Dortmund winger, linked heavily in recent months, remains Solskjaer’s top target.

However, one BBC journalist has claimed that United could follow that deal up with one or two more signings.
