Manchester United are reportedly closing in on a new deal for the 23-year-old Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot, a target for Real Madrid.

According to Football Insider, Manchester United have been in talks with Diogo Dalot regarding a contract extension. And they are close to reaching a breakthrough in negotiations now. The Portuguese defender is a target for Real Madrid.

Dalot has a contract until the summer of 2024, and Manchester United are hoping to tie him down to a new long-term contract. Initially, the defender was about to be a free agent at the end of this season. But Manchester United triggered an option in this contract that will keep him at the club until 2024.

The Portuguese international has impressed under Erik ten Hag this season. And the Dutch manager wants to hold on to the youngster for the foreseeable future. Dalot has established himself as the first-choice right-back at Manchester United.

There is no reason for Dalot to switch clubs right now. And he will look to continue his development in Manchester. Recent reports had already suggested that Manchester United and the player were advancing talks over a renewal. And a breakthrough is close now.

Meanwhile, the Portuguese international is thought to be a target for Spanish giants Real Madrid. Los Blancos are looking to bring in a quality replacement for Dani Carvajal, who is past his peak. The Spanish international needs to be replaced as the club’s first choice right-back. And Dalot has been identified as a potential target.

Real Madrid are one of the biggest clubs in the world with extensive resources. It will be interesting to see if they can convince Manchester United to sell the defender to them in the coming months. Meanwhile, the Portuguese international could be tempted to move to Santiago Bernabeu as well.

Manchester United will be hoping that the 23-year-old extends his contract at Old Trafford and commits his long-term future to them. Ten Hag has played an important role in the player’s development this season and could help the young defender fulfil his tremendous potential.
