Dalot is a speedy wing-back, who can effectively play on either side of the defense. Last season, he scored 4 goals and provided 5 assists in 25 appearances for Porto’s youth team and deservedly earned his place in the first team.

Overall,  he made 8 appearances for the first team, six in the Primeira Liga, and provided three assists. He made his Champions League debut against Liverpool at Anfield in a contest that ended 0-0 on the night.

As per The Telegraph, United have already agreed personal terms with the teenage defender, who has so far made 4 appearances for the Portugal U-21 team.
