Man United have apparently reversed their decision and will keep Diogo Dalot for the upcoming season. The Portuguese was supposed to be expendable, especially as United considered a deal for Atletico Madrid’s Kieran Trippier, but he may have done enough to persuade Ole Gunnar Solskjaer of his first-team potential.
Adidas and Manchester United have unveiled their official 2021/22 home jersey, which features a modern take on the club’s traditional designs.
While Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been United’s first-choice right-back for the past two seasons, Solskjaer was rumored to be interested in bringing in a more attacking option.
The 23-year-old is one of the best one-on-one defenders in the Premier League, but his forward play is inconsistent.
Kieran Trippier was apparently lined up to bolster their options, but luring him away from the Spanish city has been difficult.
Trippier grew up a United supporter and would have loved the chance to return to Manchester, so the deal was thought to have legs.

Atletico Madrid manager Diego Simeone, on the other hand, places a great value on the Englishman and was not ready to let him go without a fight as Los Colchoneros prepare to defend their La Liga crown.
Although this is a setback for United, the Manchester Evening News now claims that Dalot will step up and replace Wan-Bissaka as an attacking option.
Last season, the 22-year-old was on loan at AC Milan, where he impressed enough to pique the curiosity of both the Italian club and Real Madrid.
Milan’s attitude was apparently to hold off on making a move until as late as possible this summer, which was not ideal for United in terms of finding a successor.
Dalot has played in both of United’s recent pre-season friendly, indicating that he has shown enough to reclaim his place in Solskjaer’s plans.
As a result, United’s best interests may be served by sticking with what they have and concentrating their transfer efforts elsewhere.
For much of the summer, a midfielder has been on the cards, with names like Ruben Neves being mentioned. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
