Everton tipped to reignite interest in Man United’s Diogo Dalot

Everton tipped to reignite interest in Man United’s Diogo Dalot

 

Speculation stemming from the English media over the last 24 hours has pointed towards Everton as a potential summer landing spot for on-loan Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot.

Milan switch

Portuguese stopper Dalot has of course been on the books of the Red Devils since the summer of 2018.

The now-22-year-old was brought in from Portuguese powerhouse FC Porto, amid sky-high expectations at Old Trafford.

To say that his stint in Manchester, thus far, has not gone according to plan, though, would be putting it lightly. Despite having been tipped as the long-term successor to Gary Neville by Jose Mourinho, Dalot went on to notch just 13 Premier League starts across his first two seasons with United.

In turn, when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was brought in from Crystal Palace in a big-money deal in 2019, the writing appeared very much on the wall for the Reds’ out-of-favour right-back.

And a year and just 4 Premier League appearances later, Dalot’s Old Trafford exit was finally forthcoming.

The Porto youth product made the move to Serie A giants AC Milan on a season-long loan, back in October.

Everton bound?

To this point, Dalot has enjoyed an altogether hit-and-miss stint with the Rossoneri, having generally been utilised as a backup option to first-choice full-backs Davide Calabria and Theo Hernandez.

When handed the opportunity to impress, though, the stopper, for the most part, has done so, en route to a pair of goals and assists across 24 total appearances.

Nevertheless, as things stand, it remains altogether unclear whether or not those in a position at the San Siro have any intention of making Dalot’s signing permanent.

And, as outlined above, such hesitation could be set to open the door for one of Manchester United’s Premier League rivals to swoop.

The outfit in question? Everton.

As per a report from the Liverpool Echo, Dalot is once again being eyed up by the Toffees ahead of the summer window.

Everton have been named as keen admirers of the Portuguese on more than one occasion in the past, and are even thought to have seen an approach rejected last summer, before his eventual move to Milan.

Evidently, though, Carlo Ancelotti and co. have not yet been deterred.

The Blues are on the lookout for a long-term successor for Seamus Coleman, with the likes of Max Aarons and Tariq Lamptey having been identified as potential options.

Dalot, though, possesses a key trait which both Englishmen lack, in the form of height:

The ECHO understands that the manager would prefer for Everton to add a player who is tall enough to be an aerial presence in both boxes.

The United outcast, at 6ft tall, therefore represents an ideal option, with his ability to line out on the left flank adding further to Everton’s intrigue.

It now remains to be seen whether Ed Woodward will be open to the idea of negotiating Dalot’s permanent exit with a direct rival in the English top-flight.
