United set to pay Porto €20m for teenager

English giants Manchester United are reportedly on the verge of confirming their first signing for next season, one that is bound to surprise most.

Porto accept that they have to sell, with the release clause having been met and Dalot's contract expiring next year.

Diogo Dalot could become José Mourinho's first summer signing after Manchester United opened talks with Porto over a £17.5 million deal for the Portugal Under-21 right back. Porto are understood to have turned down bids below Dalot's release clause a year ago.

Dalot actually played in England last season when Porto faced Liverpool in their Champions League last-16 second-leg.

Manager Jose Mourinho believes the Portugal Under-21 worldwide right-back can provide competition for United captain Antonio Valencia.

We've got to do a little bit better and it would be nice if they would help out a little bit, but it seems like they're not. That just means James Harden will have to heighten his game to a level he's never reached especially on a stage like this.

Dalot's representatives, which included the agent and his father, didn't provide Porto the option of offering a new deal in their last meeting as they simply revealed that the player wants to leave.

Seems like a poor guy can't write scout reports for a few hours without his mentions and DMs being exploded into an insane mess of Diogo Dalot questions.

United are exptected to offload Matteo Darmian to Juventus for £11.5 million in order to make room for the incoming Dalot, with the Italian failing to impress United boss Jose Mourinho during his spell at Manchester.

The Telegraph write: "United are also in the market for another full-back, a left-back, to strengthen in that area also".
