Manchester United set to sign Porto full-back

Manchester United set to sign Porto full-back

The Red Devils will sign Diogo Dalot in the coming days after activating his €20 million release clause.

The Portugese defender is seen as an understudy to veteran defender Antonio Valencia, with the 32-year-old struggling with knee injuries over the past few seasons.

Seven of Dalot's 33 appearances throughout the last campaign came as part of the senior set-up, one of which was in a Champions League Round of 16 away trip to Liverpool where he helped hold the eventual finalists to a 0-0 stalemate.

Matteo Darmian is set for a move back to Italy and it looks like United have found the man they want to replace him as the Telegraph claim they are on the verge of signing Porto defender Dalot.

The Portuguese full-back made his professional debut in February and has only played a handful of games for Porto - but fans are still excited about the potential new arrival. Mourinho is said to be in the market for a left-back and another central midfielder.

Dalot has already agreed personal terms with United with the highly-rated Portugal Under-21 global expected to push captain Antonio Valencia hard for a place in the first-team.

It is expected that United will make around five signings this summer, with a raft of players, including probably Marouane Fellaini, leaving as Mourinho revamps his squad. His move out of Porto was imminent as Dalot had just a year remaining on his contract.
