Manchester United Star Considering A ‘Surprise Exit’ After Christiano Ronaldo's Departure

Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot is considering a surprise from Old Trafford despite his impressive start to the campaign.

The 23-year-old Portuguese international has firmly cemented his position as first-choice right-back after Erik ten Hag took over. Dalot has failed to start only once this season. He missed Man Utd’s 2-1 win against Fulham through suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card against Aston Villa.

Ten Hag is a huge fan of Dalot and praised the Portugal international following their 1-0 win over West Ham United back in October. The former Ajax boss claimed that Dalot is "progressing" and added that "we're happy with the development and the performances of Diogo, that's quite clear."

However, Sport believes that Barcelona may have a chance to recruit the fullback as a result of Cristiano Ronaldo's shocking departure from Old Trafford. According to the source, Barcelona has been keeping tabs on the player's progress for "some time," and their curiosity has been piqued by his World Cup exploits.

Dalot's current contract expires next summer, but United has the option to extend it by another year, keeping him at the team till 2024. Dalot, though, is certain to receive a new contract from the Red Devils as a result of his strong start to the season, and Ten Hag is eager to keep him in Manchester for the foreseeable future.
