Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ready to sell Mourinho favourite Diogo Dalot
According to the Sun (h/t Express), Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is ready to sell Portuguese right-back Diogo Dalot this summer.
The 21-year-old has made just 33 appearances for the Red Devils in his two years at the club. He has been used this season as a backup for summer signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
The Englishman has enjoyed an excellent start to his United career and is now the undisputed starter at right-back. This has further limited Dalot’s opportunities, with him starting just once this season.
With his future at the club all but done, United are willing to sell the player if an acceptable offer comes in.
It will come as an anti-climatic end to a promising player’s career at the club. He was tipped to be the solution to our woes at right-back.
Dalot’s contract at Old Trafford runs until 2023 with United valuing him between £30million and £35million. Injuries haven’t helped the player’s cause, further hampering his chances to make an impact on the pitch.
Dalot is still young and has a long way to go in his career. He recently warned Wan-Bissaka that he is coming for his place in the team. Having a backup who can push the players in the starting XI will only help the competition for places in the squad.

A reunion with Mourinho could be on the cards with the Spurs boss a fan of the player. Tottenham have the unreliable Serge Aurier at right-back, necessitating them to splash the cash for a dependable defender.
Mourinho is used to playing favourites and clearly has a good opinion of his countryman. If United do go ahead and sell Dalot, we might as well make a profit on someone we paid £19million for just two years ago.
