Manchester United set to sign Porto full-back

Manchester United set to sign Porto full-back

The Mirror reports Dalot, 19, is set to become Jose Mourinho's first summer signing after United activated his £17.4million buy-out clause at Porto.

Various media outlets, including reputed papers like The Telegraph and Sky Sports, are claiming that Manchester United have met the release clause of FC Porto youngster Diogo Dalot.

Dalot broke into the Porto team last season and impressed in the handful of appearances he made in the first team, including in a 0-0 Champions League draw at Anfield.

In October he was named as Porto's young player of the year.

The teenager has been described as a modern full-back who is comfortable in attack, with good delivery and an eye for goal.

Dalot will compete with Antonio Valencia for the right-back slot at Old Trafford.

He was included in the UEFA European Under-17 Championship and the UEFA European Under-19 Championship teams of the tournament and he won the Primeira Liga title in his first season with the club.

An announcement is due within the next few days as manager Jose Mourinho steps up his efforts to strengthen United's defence this summer as he attempts to close the gap with Manchester City after a trophyless campaign.

United will also continue to monitor Gareth Bale's future at Real Madrid, having previously informed his representatives that they would like to be involved in any discussion over his future, should he decide to leave.
