Somebody gotta do it....

Portuguese defender signs a contract with the Rossoneri club
Quote:

AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of defender Jos? Diogo Dalot Teixeira on loan from Manchester United FC.

Born in Braga (Portugal) on 18 March 1999, Diogo Dalot came through the youth ranks at FC Porto before making his first-team debut in 2017. During the 2017-18 season, Dalot made 8 appearances and won the Primeira Liga with the Portuguese team. In 2018 he moved to Manchester United where he made 35 appearances, scoring 1 goal.

The defender has chosen to wear jersey number 5.

Meh

Will probably be Theo's backup.

Sure he can play there, but he has only played LB 9 times in his entire career.

Calabria is not going to play 50 games per season, Dalot will have his chance to play RB.

His defensive game seems to only consist of slide tackles, some of the standing defensive duels where almost comical. He looks like a RW who's being played out of position at RB (which he maybe is, I don't know).

Offensively he looks good, but overall I didn't see an upside to Conti (or possibly even Saele as RB) tonight.

Did you guys see Kjaer talked to Dalot after the game? Kjaer seems giving some advise to him. If Dalot follows the path Theo has taken to learn to improve his game especially his defensive ability, the Portuguese player might impress us.

Theo can do what he does thanks to sublime athleticism.

Dalot looks like he's had one too many injury in comparison.

Ah, didn't know that. At least, it is a loan (even though without option lol).

VultureSheva 23-10-2020 03:23

Not good imo, looks slow and has Bonera’s face :lol:

I would like to see Kalulu too.

Of course you would.

After preseason he looked very raw though. You said Tonali was bad but Kalulu has no top level experience and other than pace his defending was questionable vs Serie B sides. He needs his time to grow in Primavera and maybe the odd cameo.

VultureSheva 30-10-2020 05:54

With some improvement in defence Dalot would take Calabria’s place.

I liked him better on the left, maybe he profits from having his strong leg on the inside.

Mr. Milanista 30-10-2020 13:34

That assist was worldclass

Mario 30-10-2020 13:46

I hope there is at least some sort of a gentleman's agreement that a fee could be discussed (but this would be 25+ probably knowing them) after this year as out of all the clubs Man U is the one I do not want us developing players for

Not that we should do that for anyone

But Dalot could be a wildhorse for us and I've said that before. Hes very talented and still only Leao's age.

Even if he didn't start all the time a club like ours should have 3 good fullbacks

sheva 30-10-2020 14:38

Don't see him as a high motivation to join us, more like a stepping stone in his career.

Man U will grill us in the requested fee even if he wishes to continue here, and that's not the position we most need strength in.

If we failed (big one) to qualify for CL, it might be true that we are like moving to Milan like stepping stone but we really are in good form now, a CL spot is realistic. He is not loaned to small clubs, here is Milan, still a big club.

If the player is already happy with Milan, the price should be not skyrocket.

Goodfella 31-10-2020 07:07

I think he's open to staying. It's not like he's Mancunian or a Manure product
However we've put a moron like Ed Woodward in a win-win situation for once.
If Diogo has a great spell, then they'll recall him or demand a ridiculous fee.

Milan has become like Gasperini's Atalanta, a club where attackers flourish and players get overvalued.
But we're punished rather than rewarded for the market value growth.
Too many of these overperforming players are/were on loan or expiring contracts.
Rebic, Ibra, Hakan, Kessie, Donna, Diaz, Dalot, perhaps Bennacer as well if there's a low clause.

Dalot and Diaz have clearly been useful as stopgaps even if their stay is temporary, however their progress shouldn't come at the expense of Milan-owned players like Hauge or Calabria until we get buyout options.

Soldier_of_god 31-10-2020 08:05

Hope this guy stays. Hopefully not going back to manure after they kicked him out.

VultureSheva 31-10-2020 08:26

United paid €22M for him.
