Diogo Dalot set for Man Utd exit with Everton and PSG interested in transfer for out-of-favour full-back

DIOGO DALOT is set to leave Manchester United this summer, according to reports.

And Everton and Paris Saint-Germain are said to be interested in rescuing the full-back from the Old Trafford wilderness.

The Portuguese has struggled for game time with Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Luke Shaw starting most games when fit.

And the 21-year-old is almost certain to pursue first-team opportunities elsewhere, according to Portuguese outlet O Jogo.

Despite the fact Marcos Rojo is on his way out, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to use Timoth Fosu-Mensah as back-up full-back next season so could do without Dalot.

Carlo Ancelotti is said to be a big fan of the versatile defender.

And Champions League finalists PSG are monitoring the situation and a move could see Dalot link up with former United team-mate Ander Herrera.

United are keen to boost funds for summer transfers with Dalot one of the players for sale.

Dalot joined United from Porto in a £19million deal under Jose Mourinho in 2018 but he has barely featured in Solskjaer’s line-up this season.

This season the full-back, who has battled with hip and groin injuries, has made 11 appearances across all competitions, netting once in an FA Cup tie against Tranmere Rovers. 

And the player has made just four appearances in Premier League fixtures this term. 

Everton’s right-back slot is currently occupied by Toffees fan favourite and club captain Seamus Coleman. 

However, it is believed Ancelotti sees Dalot as a potential future successor to Coleman, who will be 32 later this year. 

And it is believed his ability to play on both flanks could make him a useful back-up option to Lucas Digne at left-back.
