Manchester United are reportedly prepared to sanction the sale of Diogo Dalot, who remains a huge favourite of Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese was signed by United when Mourinho was in-charge during the previous season and he described him as the best European full-back in his age group.

However, injuries and the competition for places have hampered his prospects of commanding regular gametime and he is currently the second-choice right-back behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

According to The Sun, United would be open to offers for the 21-year-old defender, who has been restricted to only one start in the Premier League this term.

It is added that they are eyeing a package of around £30m to £35m and anything less than that would tempt them to keep hold of their player for the 2020/21 season.

Mourinho's Spurs have been touted as the favourites to sign him. The Portuguese tactician is on the hunt for a new right-back to replace Serge Aurier, who has had an average 2019/2020 campaign.
