MANCHESTER UNITED have reportedly told right-back Diogo Dalot he can leave after signing Aaron Wan-Bissaka – and fans are not happy.
United secured their second signing of the summer after Wan-Bissaka arrived at Old Trafford for £50million from Crystal Palace.
Old Trafford chiefs made signing a right-back a priority, with Ashley Young and Dalot filling the position last season.
The Evening Standard report Dalot has been put up for sale, while Young and Phil Jones were given surprising contract extensions.
Dalot arrived in Manchester from Porto for £18m last summer and made 18 appearances last campaign, also playing as a right-midfielder.
United fans were left fuming with the news Dalot has been told he can leave branding the decision”disgusting”.
One said: “Decision by Ole to let Dalot leave this summer is a bad bad one, he is good and for me much better than Young who was given a contract extension.”
Another said: “Absolutely disgusting if true about Dalot.”
One added: “NOOO.”
Current first-teamers Romelu Lukaku, 26, Alexis Sanchez, 30, and Paul Pogba, 25, have all been linked with Old Trafford exits this summer, making way for new signings.
It comes after United vice-chairman Ed Woodward allegedly emailed club staff to tell them to expect “exciting” summer signings.
The Daily Telegraph claim to have seen an internal email sent by the Old Trafford chief around 10 minutes before the announcement of Wan-Bissaka’s £50m move.
Woodward allegedly wrote: “Despite the inflated nature of the transfer market and constant speculation and stories, which can be misleading, the recruitment team – in conjunction with the manager – are working calmly behind the scenes to bring in other exciting players that fit their long-term vision for the club.”
