Paris Saint-Germain started talks with €20m-rated Man United defender

Sometimes it’s only blatantly clear that a player doesn’t have a future with a club, and that moment came for Diogo Dalot last campaign at Old Trafford. He’s got some experience of playing left-back and Brandon Williams and Luke Shaw were missing, only the Norwegian manager decided to play Fosu-Mensah instead.

U21 Portugal international’s future has been obvious for a while when he wasn’t even appearing in matchday squads, but that was the moment that truly proved it. As a result, he’s a footballer who should be looking for a move this summer, and the Parisians are looking to make a move for him.

The Parisians lost Thomas Meunier to Borussia Dortmund so they have an obvious need to bolster in that position, and you have to think that the Red Devils won’t stop him from going if the price is right.

Diogo has shown that he’s a good footballer and he actually has the pace and power to be exciting when he drives forward, but he’s only not had a regular run of games to show it.

Selling him to the Parisians would allow the Red Devils to raise some funds and it wouldn’t hurt the first-team squad, while it would hopefully give the footballer an opportunity to establish himself in a good team.

It is also expected Timothy Fosu-Mensah will be used as a backup next season, leaving the Portuguese defender out in the cold. Champions League finalists Parisians are said to be keeping an eye on the situation, but he would face competition from Juan Bernat in the role in PSG.
