first-team last season and has only made a handful of appearances for the Portuguese champions. Today, Man Utd are set to sign Diogo Dalot...
Strengthening his defence is a priority and a new right-back to act as a long-term replacement for Antonio Valencia is desperately needed as the Ecuadorian global turns 33 in August. Interest in Diogo Dalot has been present for a while now, with FC Porto rejecting multiple bids below the player's €20 million release clause.
Dalot can also play in midfield and at left-back, the position he has operated in primarily for Sérgio Conceição's side.
The Spain global has two years left on his deal with the Catalan club and talks over a new deal seem to have stalled.
United are exptected to offload Matteo Darmian to Juventus for £11.5 million in order to make room for the incoming Dalot, with the Italian failing to impress United boss Jose Mourinho during his spell at Manchester.
Matteo Darmian is set to join Juventus, while Dutch worldwide Daley Blind is unlikely to still be a United player by the start of the new season.
"[When] Raul Sanllehi [now at Arsenal] was still at the club when they told us not to worry, that they were going to call us to renew", Alba's agent Vicente Fores said, as quoted by the Mirror.
