Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed he is ‘looking forward’ to welcoming Diogo Dalot back into Manchester United’s squad next season.

The 22 year old Portuguese full-back joined AC Milan on loan last season after failing to play regularly at Manchester United due to fitness issues and also the form of Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Since joining AC Milan on loan, Dalot has remained fit and played regularly for the Italian club.

“The plan was always for Diogo this season, or the main thing for Diogo, was to be fit,” Solskjaer said.

“He never managed to be fit for a long spell when he was here and was unfortunate with injuries.

“Now he’s kept fit all season; he’s been available for them. He’s playing at a big club, big expectations and a great history, so it’s been a good year for him.

“So, of course, I’ve been very pleased with his development this season. He’s our player and we’re looking forward to having him back.”

Dalot made the move to Manchester from Porto in 2018 but only managed to make 35 appearances across two seasons.
