OUT of favour Manchester United star Diogo Dalot has joined AC Milan on a season-long loan, the Serie A giants have confirmed.
The Portuguese right-back found himself surplus to requirements at Old Trafford, despite featuring in the Carabao Cup win over Brighton.
Last season, Dalot fell below Timothy Fosu-Mensah and Brandon Williams in the United pecking order.
And with reports suggesting that the Red Devils are near to a deal for Porto full-back Alex Telles before the transfer window closes tomorrow – Dalot could see his game-time limited even further.
AC Milan released a statement on Sunday: "AC Milan is delighted to announce the signing of defender José Diogo Dalot Teixeira on loan from Manchester United FC.
"Born in Braga (Portugal) on 18 March 1999, Diogo Dalot came through the youth ranks at FC Porto before making his first-team debut in 2017.
"During the 2017-18 season, Dalot made 8 appearances and won the Primeira Liga with the Portuguese team. In 2018 he moved to Manchester United where he made 35 appearances, scoring 1 goal.
"The defender has chosen to wear jersey number 5."
Dalot was a £19million signing by Jose Mourinho in 2018.
He joins the exodus of United players who moved to Italy following Andreas Pereira's loan move to Lazio.
Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young and Romelu Lukaku all swapped the Premier League for Serie A in recent seasons.
