Red Devils reportedly want £35m to allow Diogo Dalot to leave the Old Trafford with Paris Saint-Germain said to be interested in the right-back.

U20 Portugal international arrived at Theatre of Dreams from Porto in 2018, but through a combination of injuries and competition for places, he has struggled to cement his place in the starting line-up.

So far this campaign, Diogo has managed only 10 appearances across all tournaments, and with Aaron Wan-Bissaka firmly established as the first-choice right-back in the Norwegian manager’s side, it doesn’t look as though his situation will change any time soon.

Since October 2018, Dalot has also missed 32 matches due to injury. Despite that, the Red Devils want £35m to greenlight an exit for the Portuguese defender, with the Parisians said to be interested in him.

That looks like a fee that would possibly put them off from continuing their pursuit, but time will tell if there is a compromise that can be reached between the two sides.

That said, beyond Dalot, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer isn’t blessed with several options to push Wan-Bissaka at right-back and so he may well have to weigh up cashing in on a bit-part player and the need for quality depth to ensure that Red Devils can compete on multiple fronts moving forward.

Further, the Portuguese right-back is still young at 21, while he has the versatility to play on the left if needed as well in a more advanced role on the right flank.
