Manchester United ready to reject Barcelona and PSG advances for youngster

Published

on

The Portuguese youngster has featured sparingly since moving to Old Trafford on a £19m deal from Porto in 2018 but, still only 21, United aren’t listening to offers just yet.

Injuries and, more pertinently, the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka have restricted Dalot to just one Premier League start this season, having played more minutes in the Europa League by comparison.

The defender made 16 league appearances by comparison in his first season in England, registering two assists, but a lack of action in recent times doesn’t seem to have perturbed a number of Europe’s elite from enquiring about Dalot’s services.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sees the youngster as a valuable asset given his ability to play on either side of the back four, and even further forward if needed, and has challenged him to fight for a starting place at United.

In all likelihood, that’s likely to be on his unfavoured left side, where Luke Shaw and Brandon Williams have been competing for a starting spot since the turn of the year.

Barcelona are reportedly ready to offload fellow Portuguese right-back Nelson Semedo to Juventus, while PSG will need reinforcements with Thomas Meunier’s current deal ending this summer.

PICTURES: Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell join Chelsea training

Published

on

Chelsea returned to training today (Wednesday) at Cobham, and there were two new faces joining the rest of the squad, Thiago Silva and Ben Chilwell. The two summer arrivals had yet to train with the squad since signing, dealing with quarantine (presumably) and heel injury issues, respectively.

It’s unclear if either will be fit and ready for this weekend’s match against Liverpool, but it’s still nice to see them in training with the rest of the group! (Those who played on Monday apparently had a lighter session, but were all out there nonetheless.)

There’s no word on how close Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic may be. Ziyech is probably still a couple weeks out with his knee problem, at least, but Pulisic was supposed to be close before suffering a potential setback with his hamstring late last week. Neither were pictured in training, and one would assume their presence would get emphasized had they been there.
