Manchester United are reportedly in advanced talks with Diogo Dalot over a new long-term contract amid transfer interest from Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The 21-year-old Portuguese full-back has been a regular in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side this season, making 22 appearances in all competitions.

Dalot joined United from Porto in 2018 and has since made a total of 56 appearances for the club, scoring two goals and providing four assists.

The youngster has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent months, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both reportedly interested in signing him.

However, according to reports, United are now in advanced talks with Dalot over a new long-term contract.

The Red Devils are said to be keen to tie down the defender to a new deal, with his current contract set to expire in 2022.

It is believed that United are willing to offer Dalot a significant pay rise in order to convince him to stay at the club.

The Portuguese international is highly rated by Solskjaer and is seen as an important part of the club’s future.

Dalot has been a regular in United’s starting line-up this season, playing at both right-back and left-back.

He has also been used in a more advanced role on occasion, with Solskjaer often deploying him as a right-winger.

The 21-year-old has shown his versatility and has been a key player for United this season.

It remains to be seen whether Dalot will sign a new contract with United, but it appears that the club are keen to keep hold of him.

The Red Devils are currently second in the Premier League table and are pushing for a top-four finish this season.

They are also through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League, where they will face Granada in the next round.

Dalot has been an important part of United’s success this season and it looks like the club are keen to keep him at Old Trafford for the long-term.
