Legendary United manager Alex Ferguson has addressed a similar issue in the past.
Manchester United are dealing with the summer transfer window in the interest of their player. But sometimes the clubs should do better for the sake of the situation at the expense of the player’s taste.
The Portuguese right-back of the Red Devils is a matter for consideration in the summer transfer window. Ole Gunnar Solskjær is not sure about the future of the player at Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old spent last season on loan at Serie A giants AC Milan. He returns to Manchester this summer in hopes of a place under the Norwegian boss. He got two more years in his Old Trafford contract.
Dalot had an impressive season in Italy. He played 34 games for Rossoneri in all competitions last season. The situation is different in Manchester United. The player got no chance in Ole’s first team according to the current outfit of the club.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka is the available option for Ole in the position and manager is keen to add more competition to the player in the summer transfer window. Signing a wing-back is one of United’s summer projects. They have registered an interest in Atletico Madrid player Kieren Trippier according to sources.
Although speculation predicts another year loan to Dalot, and Milan can use the player for another season. Sources from Italy report on Rossoneri’s great interest in the Portuguese international. Meanwhile, he gained a high reputation with his national side.
The Euro 2020 campaign for Portuguese is preferred Diogo Dalot on the right flank. Coach Fernando Santos put the United player in the starting line-up against Belgium in a round of 16 actions.
Dalot dilemma similar to Manchester United- Pique tale
The current transfer dilemma for United had some resemblance to the past. The legendary head of the Red Devils dealt with a similar situation in the Spanish defender Gerrard Pique. It was in United’s golden era when Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic ruled the Red Devils’ backline.
Gerrard Pique signed for Manchester in 2004. Although he went on loan in the following seasons. In 2008, United sold the player to FC Barcelona where he made his entire career. The player later became the club legend in Catalonia.
It was a good decision from Alex Ferguson for the benefit of both parties. Some decisions seem rude at first glance. But time will prove its positive result after years. Leaving a player in the window does not mean that the player is not worthy. It’s about the right place and the right time.
At the moment, Diogo Dalot does not fit Manchester United perfectly. He also finds a decent place in the AC Milan wing. Therefore, repeating a loan can benefit his playing career.
United’s summer business is ambitious. They close at the signing of Dortmund ace Jadon Sancho. The search for a center-back is also underway at Old Trafford. The case of Diogo Dalot is practical for them and they can take references from the past.
