Manchester United set to swoop for £17.4m Porto wonderkid Diego Dalot

Man Utd have triggered the release clause of Porto right-back Diogo Dalot

He completed all of the 0-0 draw at Liverpool in the Champions League last-16 second leg in March as Porto were knocked out 5-0 on aggregate.

United manager Jose Mourinho feels the teenage Dalot has great potential, even though the defender has only made seven senior appearances for Porto since breaking through into the first team in February.

That's because, according to the Telegraph, they've triggered Diogo Dalot's €20 million (£17.44 million) release clause. His move out of Porto was imminent as Dalot had just a year remaining on his contract.

Seems like a poor guy can't write scout reports for a few hours without his mentions and DMs being exploded into an insane mess of Diogo Dalot questions.

The expected addition of Dalot comes at a time when United are preparing for the departure of Matteo Darmian to Juventus for around £10m, while Daley Blind is also set to leave Old Trafford this summer.

Warriors return to Finals as Rockets go ice-cold in Game 7
Houston Rockets NBA Western Conference final series, see the streaming information at the bottom of this article. Paul came up huge in Game 5 , scoring 20 points in 38 minutes to help pace the Rockets to a crucial win.

The Red Devils have been tracking the 19-year-old for months and Mourinho is closing in on the defender.

Dalot has been with Porto his entire career having progressed through their youth system and he's represented Portugal at every youth level from Under15 through to Under21 so he has a bright future ahead of him.

He is signed as a back-up to current right-back and captain Antonio Valencia. His primary position is right back, but he can play left back if needed as well.

But, according to the BBC, contact has been made between United and Porto and a deal is said to be edging ever closer.
