Dalot was allowed to make a loan move to AC Milan by Manchester United in the summer, but it has now been reported that the Red Devils refused to include the option to buy as part of the loan deal, as per journalist Fabrizio Romano. That is because they are convinced he can develop into a top-class full-back in the next few years.
The 21-year-old produced an exceptional performance for AC Milan during their 3-0 win against Sparta Prague in the Europa League, which saw him register a goal and an assist, as well as making three interceptions and recording a 92% passing accuracy rate (Sofascore).
Following that win, he was asked about his potential future after the end of his loan spell. He stated to Sky Italia, via Manchester Evening News, that he was concentrating on impressing in Serie A this term and then assessing the situation during the summer.
He said: “Let’s see what happens at the end of the season. For now I don’t want to think about that: I am 100% focused on Milan and that’s it.”
United fans react to comments from Dalot
Many Manchester United fans were keen to point out that they would like to see the “world class” defender given a chance at Old Trafford, while others were more sceptical and suggested that he would struggle to ever really force his way into their starting line-up.
He’s coming back as a starter 🤞

At least the guy can go forward do some winger job and cross in a ball. AWB is good at back , he has no quality going forward. He was a good player who wasn’t given much of oppurtunity.
Saw his goal and assist in AC’s game. Was world class
