Manchester United have completed quite a few deals with clubs in Serie A in recent times. Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young; all moved to Inter Milan. While Diogo Dalot and Andreas Pereira joined AC Milan and SS Lazio respectively on season-long loan deals last summer.

Soon, the Red Devils might find themselves in the midst of more transfer discussions with Serie A clubs as Diogo Dalot, currently on loan at AC Milan, is drawing some interest.

According to TuttoSport (via Spazio Milan), Napoli have shown interest in signing the Portuguese full-back on a permanent deal next summer.

The same report also believes that Manchester United want a transfer fee of €20 million for Dalot, which AC Milan do not seem willing to shell out. Napoli will also reportedly try to bring the transfer fee down.

Could the Manchester United star move to AC Milan or Napoli?

Signed from Porto in 2018 when Jose Mourinho was the manager of Manchester United, Dalot failed to nail down a spot in the first-team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Dalot made an impressive start to his time at the San Siro, scoring and assisting a goal each in his second Europa League start last October. Other than that game though, he only has two more goal contributions during his time with AC Milan and is not a regular for them in the Serie A.

United hosted AC Milan at Old Trafford for the first leg of the Europa League Round of 16 tie last Thursday. And Stefano Pioli opted to field Dalot against his parent club. With the game finishing a 1-1 draw, he put in a decent ninety minutes of football, while playing at left-back on the night.

Having registered two goals and two assists in 22 games for the Italian giants, Dalot is expected to be given more chances till the end of the season. And it will be interesting to see whether he is able to earn himself a permanent move to AC Milan in that period of time, with Napoli also interested.

If a move does not happen, Dalot will return to Manchester United as the 21-year-old has a contract until June 2023 with the club.
