Sky Sports is reporting that Manchester United is in talks with Porto’s Diogo Dalot after triggering a $23 million release clause.

The 19-year-old also spent time at left back and right midfield last season, making eight senior appearances with three assists before suffering a meniscus injury.

Dalot has represented Portugal from U-15 to U-21, but has yet to earn a senior cap for the EURO 2016 champions.

He played 90 minutes at left back against Liverpool in a 0-0 UEFA Champions League second leg draw, facing Sadio Mane for 74 minutes and Mohamed Salah for the rest.
