Incoming Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag firmly believes in Diogo Dalot ahead of next season.
The Portugal international started the campaign as the deputy right-back behind Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer hardly played him, but things have changed with the Norwegian’s dismissal.
Under interim boss Ralf Rangnick, Dalot has been an undisputed starter in the right-back position this year.
According to O Jogo, Ten Hag has been keeping tabs on the Portuguese, and is impressed by his progress.
It is added that he is prepared to trust him for next season. Wan-Bissaka seems more likely to leave.
United are on the hunt for a new right-back this summer. They have been linked with Nordi Mukiele.
The Frenchman is set to leave Leipzig in the coming weeks, having snubbed a new deal beyond June 2023.
He could be signed for just £8m, but there could be heavy competition from Bayern and Paris Saint-Germain.
United face a tough task of luring him without Champions League football.
