Man Utd face losing in-form Diogo Dalot as super-agent Jorge Mendes ‘endorses’ move to Barcelona next summer

MANCHESTER UNITED star Diogo Dalot’s agent Jorge Mendes is working on moving him to Barcelona, according to reports.

The Portuguese ace has been in superb form this season, drawing special praise from Gary Neville last weekend.

Dalot’s contract is set to expire in the summer, with Barcelona among a host of teams interested in securing his signature for free.

According to Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo, Mendes has offered Dalot to Barca, a club he has an “exquisite relationship” with.

The super-agent has “backed” and “personally endorsed” a move to the LaLiga giants for his client, despite the right-back enjoying his best season at Man United to date.

Asked about his future after the 1-0 win over West Ham last weekend, Dalot was noncommittal.

He told Sky Sports: “I don’t think it’s the time to think about my contract situation.

“We’re in the process to improve our game as team.

“I love to play for Man United as I always try to show. I’m happy – this is the most important thing.”

Following the win over the Hammers last weekend, Man United icon Neville praised the Red Devils’ defence.


He said: “They’ve all contributed. They’re all going to (David) De Gea but Dalot, (Lisandro) Martinez, (Harry) Maguire and De Gea in that last 15-20 minutes were outstanding.

“(David) Moyes must wonder what he needs to do to win a game at Old Trafford. He can’t believe it.”

Dalot, 23, has started every game this season under Erik ten Hag.

His form has seen Aaron Wan-Bissaka frozen out at Old Trafford.

Barca, meanwhile, have used a number of players at right-back this term – including Jules Kounde, Sergi Roberto, Hector Bellerin and Alejandro Balde.
