Dalot has future under Ten Hag

Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag firmly believes in Diogo Dalot ahead of next season.

The Portugal international started the campaign as the deputy right-back behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hardly played him, but things have changed with the Norwegian's dismissal.

Under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, Dalot has been an undisputed starter in the right-back position this year.

According to O Jogo, Ten Hag has been keeping tabs on the Portuguese, and is impressed by his progress.

It is added that he is prepared to trust him for next season. Wan-Bissaka seems more likely to leave.

United are on the hunt for a new right-back this summer. They have been linked with Nordi Mukiele.

The Frenchman is set to leave Leipzig in the coming weeks, having snubbed a new deal beyond June 2023.

He could be signed for just £8m, but there could be heavy competition from Bayern and Paris Saint-Germain.

United face a tough task of luring him without Champions League football.
