Manchester United are braced for summer interest in AC Milan loanee Diogo Dalot, according to reports.

The right-back joined the Italian giants in October to continue his development.

He’s made 17 Serie A appearances since and recently featured in the 2-0 victory over Benevento.

According to The Sun, United are expecting bids in the coming months for the talented 22-year-old.

The most likely source will be AC Milan as they are keen to retain his services past this season.

Dalot has previously caught the attention of Tottenham, although they aren’t expected to act on their interest.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will have a big say in the defender’s future.

He could utilise Dalot next season as the Portuguese U21 international would provide good competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

But with Brandon Williams and Axel Tuanzebe also able to deputise, it’s likely that Solskjaer will allow Dalot to leave.

A £15million bid from AC Milan will be enough to tempt United into selling.

That sale would give the Red Devils a boost in their summer transfer plans.

Solskjaer is hoping to bring in a top-quality right winger. Jadon Sancho has been an option for some time but will fetch a huge fee.

Other options include Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele and Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior.

Edinson Cavani’s long-term successor in attack also needs to be signed. Either Harry Kane or Erling Haaland will be targeted, depending on United’s finances.

When asked about Haaland earlier in the season, Solskjaer said: “It is clear that Erling is going to have a fantastic career. I follow Erling. I have always said that. Was it 18 months we had together or something like that?

“Almost two years, perhaps. A fantastic time. He will surely have a super career both for Norway and his club. He is doing incredibly well for Dortmund.

“We will see where he ends up. As a Norwegian and someone who has worked with him, it is of course great that he is doing so well.”

Haaland has bagged 25 goals in 26 Bundesliga appearances this season, putting him second in the German scoring charts behind Robert Lewandowski.
