José Mourinho targets Porto full-back Diogo Dalot for Manchester United

Man Utd transfer news Diogo Dalot

Dalot broke into the Porto team last season and impressed in the handful of appearances he made in the first team, including in a 0-0 Champions League draw at Anfield.

His current deal runs out at the end of next season and it contains a €20m release clause, which Manchester United are prepared to trigger to take him to England this summer.

A naturally right-footed player, Dalot has shown his versatility by also playing on the left side throughout his Porto career. In this picture, FC Porto's defender Diogo Dalot from Portugal attends FC Porto Gala Dragoes de Ouro 2016 - 2017 at Dragao Caixa in Porto, Portugal, Oct. 25, 2017.

Manager Jose Mourinho believes the Portugal Under-21 global right-back can provide competition for United captain Antonio Valencia.

Diogo Dalot is close to joining Manchester United.

Jose Mourinho will be bringing in a number of players this summer with others set to depart.

Manchester United are reportedly interested in Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba.

Matteo Darmian, who has been a reserve for Mourinho in both full-back slots, is expected to leave, so Dalot is seen as a replacement for the Italian and as a challenger for Valencia's first-team berth.

If he refuses to sign a new deal, United and Chelsea, who are also interested, could make a move in the coming weeks.

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