Dalot set to sign new Man Utd deal

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is set to sign a new long-term contract, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Portuguese has been a revelation for the Red Devils this campaign and he missed just one game before the World Cup.

Since the restart, the right-back has been suffering from a nagging thigh issue but this has not reduced his importance.

Manager Erik ten Hag values him very highly and it is now reported that talks are advanced over a new five-year contract.

Barcelona have been watching the situation closely over the last few weeks, but are now ready to move on to other targets.

Dalot has pretty much made the decision to renew at United and it is only a matter of time before an agreement is reached.

The Portuguese should earn close to £100,000-a-week with the extension. He is United's undisputed starter when fit.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has been the deputy this season, could be sold this summer if United want another right-back.
