Diogo Dalot to have medical at Manchester United this week

Pacos de Ferreira v Porto - Primeira Liga
FC Porto full-back Diogo Dalot is close to a move to Manchester United

According to Sky Sports, Porto defender Diogo Dalot will be having his medical at Manchester United this week. The two clubs have reportedly agreed on a fee for the right-back to move to Old Trafford.

The 19-year-old has a €20m (£17.4m) release clause in his contract and it is not yet clear whether United are paying the full amount to secure his services.

A product of Porto's youth academy, Dalot is capable of playing as a right-back as well as a left-back. What remains to be seen is whether Mourinho will play him on the right or left.

Dalot is six feet tall and right-footed. He is also capable of playing as a wing-back - which is what he did when Porto B played a three-man defence.

Since he is only 19, Mourinho may not play him in the first team straight away. This looks like a signing to secure the club's future in defence with both Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young entering the final year of their contract at the Old Trafford club.

Matteo Darmian is expected to leave Manchester United this summer so Dalot will be a replacement for him rather than one for the veteran full-backs currently in the side. He has only played six times for Porto's senior side after making his debut in February this year.
