The former Porto youth is additionally widely anticipated to be named in the Portugal squad for the forthcoming World Cup, where he is expected to secure a starting place.
In spite of developing into a major player for Man United, there’s presently speculative about his long term, as his current contract with the 20 time English champions is due to expire following June..
The Red Devils have the choice of activating the 12 months remaining on the current deal, while there is talk of a possible new long term deal in Manchester.
Dalot’s future is unclear, however, and both Real Madrid and Barcelona are thought to be keen on signing the Portuguese next year.
The right – back declared he was “happy” at Old Trafford and’likes playing for the club’but didn’t see the need to talk about a new contract at this time.
I mean, I do not think this is worth thinking about a lot at this time. ” “we are at a point in our game where we have to improve as a team and concentrate on the club,” Dalot told Sky Sports News.
I am just glad I can help this club. I really love playing because of this club and I believe I show my support every time I go to Old Trafford and put on this badge. This’s the most crucial for me [right now].”
Dalot found it difficult in the beginning to secure regular minutes for Man United, and the presence of Aaron Wan Bissaka at Old Trafford prompted him to spend the 2020-21 season on loan at Ac Milan.
Former Porto youngster turned out to be Man United’s first choice right defender when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked as coach in November last year, and he’s been a crucial player for Ten Hag this term.
