Despite the fact that Sky Germany’s Max Bielefeld reported that Borussia Dortmund and Manchester United have agreed on the principle of a loan for Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot, Fabrizio Romano claims the England Red Devils have made a decision final on the future of the rear.
According to reports from Italian transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Diogo Dalot will not travel to the Bundesliga (or even anywhere other than Old Trafford) this season. Reports surfacing yesterday about Borussia Dortmund’s interest were apparently true.
If one of Germany’s top transfer experts is to be believed, Man United and Germany’s Schwarzgelben have even gone so far as to draft a loan deal.
Breakthrough in negotiations between Dortmund and Man United for a transfer of Diogo Dalot!
The two clubs agreed on the loan and the purchase obligation yesterday.

Bielefeld called any hope of a loan crossing the line with ManU’s urgent need to find a potential replacement for the player. Clearly, the English Red Devils have concluded that no suitable replacement can be obtained over the next four days.
Manchester United have made a final decision: Diogo Dalot will stay. It is not transferable. Club and Solskjaer are very happy with Dalot, they trust him for the present and the future so he is not leaving. ?? #MUFC
