Milan ready to negotiate for Dalot

Milan are reportedly planning to open talks with Manchester United over a permanent move for Diogo Dalot.

The Rossoneri are currently prioritising the renewals of Hakan Calhanoglu and Gianluigi Donnarumma, both expiring in June.

Calciomercato.com expects news about the star duo at the end of the month but highlights that the negotiations with United are on the agenda as well.

The Portuguese full-back could remain at San Siro beyond the loan deal that expires in June, as he is not part of coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans at Old Trafford.

The outlet doesn’t expect any less complications for Milan than Roma experienced when they signed Chris Smalling last summer, as Milan are hoping to sign him for less than the reported €22m that United paid for the former FC Porto defender in July 2018.

The 21-year-old is expected to replace Davide Calabria on Sunday, as the latter is suspended for the match against Spezia.

The report claims Dalot wants to remain in Milan but adds that Sevilla are interested, should the Rossoneri fail to reach an agreement with the Premier League giants.

Dalot has played 16 competitive games for Milan since he moved on loan last summer and has helped the Rossoneri to the last 32 of the Europa League with six appearances in the competition.

His contract with Manchester United expires in June 2023.
