Diogo Dalot remains valid option for the defense

Roma’s interest in Diogo Dalot was already rumored earlier in the summer, with the capital club making an effort late in the window to sign him on a dry loan.

This time around, calciomercato.com reports that the Giallorossi are still interested in the Portuguese full-back and are in contact with the Red Devils ahead of the January transfer window.

Dalot could come in as a back-up to Rick Karsdorp.

General Manager Tiago Pinto may consider bringing him on loan with option to buy.

It remains to be seen whether United will aim to insert an obligation in the deal.
