What happens to Dalot after Wan-Bissaka signing?

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has continued to spruce up his squad in preparation for the next season that is expected to begin in August.

United has already signed a Wales and former Swansea forward Daniel James and has just completed the signing of Crystal Palace player of the year, Aaron Wan-Bissaka who is bringing trouble to United players, Diago Dalot and Captain,  Ashley Young who are right backs.

Dalot will definitely continue to play a big part in the Manchester United squad despite the imminent signing of the Crystal Palace’s highly-rated young right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Dalot was signed from Porto for a fee of £19m in 2018 and made 23 appearances in all competitions for United last season.

With United spending £50m on Wan-Bissaka, however, he will surely be their number one choice at right-back, which has led many to question what role Dalot will now play in the team.

However, according to reports in Manchester United, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still sees Dalot as a crucial part of his side and believes the 20-year-old’s versatility is a huge plus for his team.

Solskjaer thinks Dalot has the capability to play left-back, and that due to his impressive crossing ability he may also be used further forward on the wings.

The youngster is certainly highly-rated, with ex-manager Jose Mourinho claiming upon his signing that “Manchester United now has a very good right-back for 10 years.”

Solskjaer looks to have a different idea, however, and will undoubtedly play Wan-Bissaka in that position.

The 21-year-old started 35 games in the Premier League at right-back for Palace last season in an extremely promising breakthrough campaign.


He was named the Crystal Palace Player of the Year as a result of his performances but appears set to leave the club after just one season.
