Top European Clubs Wanted Manchester United Defender Diogo Dalot

The agent of Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot has revealed top European clubs wanted the fullback before his move to Manchester United.

Carlos Goncalves claims former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho played an important role in Dolot’s choice of joining Manchester United.

Goncalves told Portuguese outlet Record: “In fact, Diogo was injured before [joining] Manchester United.

“So Jose Mourinho was very important, because making a transfer for a player who has just been operated on involves a lot of courage.

“And it was Diogo’s choice. It was a case where we had several solutions for him and the player decided where he wanted to play.

“I can’t say, but they were other great European clubs.”
