Real Madrid are interested in signing Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot this summer.
That is according to Correio da Manha who report Madrid’s newly appointed boss Carlo Ancelotti has reignited his interest in Dalot after failing to sign the versatile fullback for Everton last year and it’s said the Italian thinks he could ‘rejuvenate’ Los Blancos’ defence.
The Portuguese outlet claim Dalot could now finally join Ancelotti at the Bernabeu, but the MEN understand United have told 22-year-old to report for pre-season training at Carrington, despite AC Milan’s interest in securing his signature permanently after his loan.
Dalot’s father, Jacinto Teixeira, has also since reaffirmed those details, explaining that his son will indeed make his return to Old Trafford after his season on loan in Milan, which means this report should perhaps be treated with a degree of scepticism.
In more transfer news, the Daily Star report Sergio Ramos snubbed United to seal a move to Paris Saint-Germain this summer, despite the latter offering lower wages to the Madrid stalwart – it’s claimed the Reds offered a one year deal worth £200,000 per week.
Should Dalot stay at United for next season? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
It seems Ramos has turned down that offer to join PSG, though, and the article claims Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will now focus his attention and resources on signing Raphael Varane instead, who is now heading into the final year of his contract in Spain.
It’s also been reported that United have concerns over Varane’s hefty wage demands, which are thought to be £400,000 per week.
