Manchester United trigger Diogo Dalot's €20 million release clause

Manchester United trigger Diogo Dalot's €20 million release clause

It is understood that United have met the €20 million buy-out clause in his contract with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho looking to strengthen his defence ahead of next season.

Manchester United are reportedly set to sign Porto right-back Diogo Dalot.

Porto had hoped to hang on to Dalot for at least another season and had rebuffed interest from other clubs.

Dalot has only made seven first-team appearances for Porto but United's scouts have been sufficiently impressed by the performances to make a move for the 19-year-old.

A naturally right-footed player, Dalot has shown his versatility by also playing on the left side throughout his Porto career.

And the Iran issue marks the first time that Russia, France and Germany agree on such a major matter in years. Macron responded on a serious note that France and its allies could stand for themselves.

Dalot has been capped by Portugal at every age group from U15 to U21 level and made his first team debut for Porto in a 6-0 away win over Lusitano G.C in October of previous year.

The teenager has been described as a modern full-back who is comfortable in attack, with good delivery and an eye for goal.

Jose Mourinho does not have faith in his right-back options beyond Antonio Valencia, who is 32.

Matteo Darmian is set to join Juventus, while Dutch global Daley Blind is unlikely to still be a United player by the start of the new season.

The youngster, who help Portugal lift the U17 European Championship in 2016, is now in his country's U21 squad and has already made his debut in the UEFA Champions League.
