Borussia Dortmund have made a loan bid for Manchester United’s Diogo Dalot. United are said to be considering the offer while at the same time reigniting talks over Kieran Trippier.
United’s pursuit of Trippier was paused earlier in the window due to Atletico Madrid’s demands for a £28 million fee together with Dalot’s good form in pre-season. But dialogue is open again after Dortmund’s approach.
AC Milan are also interested in taking the Portuguese full-back for a second time.
There still remain major hurdles to Dalot leaving and Trippier joining, with sources previously confident neither would happen.
Despite the Dortmund offer, it is believed the most likely outcome is the Portugal international remaining at United for the foreseeable future.
United are asking for a €5 million loan fee for Dalot and there is a big gap in valuation over Trippier. United originally believed the England international could be signed for £10 million.
United would not allow Dalot to depart without bringing in a replacement, after sending Brandon Williams and Ethan Laird out on loan to Norwich City and Swansea City respectively.
