Spanish giants Real Madrid are keen on signing Manchester United star Diogo Dalot, according to reports.

Dalot, 23, has established himself as the first-choice right-back under Erik ten Hag this season. However, due to two separate injury setbacks, the Portugal international has since been made to share the position with rejuvenated former Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

It was Wan-Bissaka who started for United against Barcelona in the Europa League on Thursday. But could his fellow right-back move on when the market reopens?

United triggered their one-year option on Dalot this season to keep him tied down until 2024 – and there have also been encouraging talks over an improved agreement. However, reports from Spanish publication AS argue Real are in the hunt for his signature.

Dalot has seemingly been identified as a longer-term replacement for Dani Carvajal at the Santiago Bernabeu. The same article claims Real would be willing to wait 18 months to sign Dalot as a free agent should United not come to an agreement over his proposed extension.

Elsewhere, reports from Calciomercato suggest United have entered the race to sign Marcus Thuram on a free transfer when his contract ends next summer. However, the Premier League giants will encounter competition from Arsenal and other English clubs for him.

Thuram, 25, has enjoyed an impressive campaign for Borussia Monchengladbach with 13 goals and four assists coming from his 21 appearances in all competitions. He also played for France at the recent World Cup in Qatar as Les Bleus reached the final before losing on penalties to Argentina.

Thuram has spent coming up four seasons with the Bundesliga side. Arsenal, Chelsea and Newcastle have been linked with the nine-cap international – who plays as a forward.
