Milan Readying New Offer for Man United Defender, Eye Two Alternatives

After completing a host of deals, Milan are attempting to find a new right-back to pair up with Davide Calabria. Their top option is to bring back Diogo Dalot, who had a positive stint last season. Manchester United have so far rejected their proposals, but the Rossoneri are preparing a new one to convince them, Sky Sport reports.

The Red Devils want a €4/5M fee for the initial loan, while Milan offered less in the past. The total evaluation of the player is around €20M. The English club would rather include an obligation to buy and not just an option, informs. Real Madrid are also after him as Carlo Ancelotti is a big fan, but they need to sell some players first. His strong summer has driven up the price and the interest.

Dalot registered 33 appearances across all competitions last season, scoring twice. The player has given his priority to Milan and is hoping the two clubs come to terms, Sky informs. The Rossoneri will continue to work on his front before moving onto other options.

If their chase was unsuccessful, Milan would turn to Alvaro Odriozola and Serge Aurier, the specialized site adds. The Spanish fullback has come up in the extensive talks between them and the Merengues and is on his way out. Moreover, director Paolo Maldini likes the Ivorian international a lot, and his contract expires in 2022. New Tottenham coach Nuno Espirito Santo will soon weigh in on his future. The Spurs are pursuing Bologna’s Takehiro Tomiyasu, who is versatile but is at his best in the same role.
