Premier League side Manchester United have confirmed the departure of Portuguese defender Diogo Dalot who has joined Italian side AC Milan for the rest of the season.
Diogo Dalot joined Manchester United last two seasons from FC Porto, but found it difficult to get regular playing time under gaffer Ole Solskjaer since last term.
The 21-year-old has played 35 games for Manchester United scoring only one goal in all competitions before Manchester United loaned him out.
United took to their social media page to confirm this latest development and also wished Diogo Dalot the best in his career at the Italian Serie A.
“It feels good to start feeling confident again and feeling comfortable with my fitness. I’m going to push hard and make sure that I deserve to play here.
”That’s why I signed to come here. I want to be the best right-back that I can be at Manchester United.
“They [injuries] are experiences that I need to live. It’s football and you need to be ready for this kind of challenge. Of course I was young when all this happened but in my mind, I am always trying to be positive and in the future, I’ll be strong, physically and mentally,”Diogo Dalot explained according to report on GOAL.

Earlier, Bioreports had reported how Man United vs Tottenham Hotspur saw the Red Devils’ poor start to the season continue as the north London side won 6-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday evening, October 4.
United came into the match on the back of a 3-2 unconvincing win over Brighton in what is now their only victory of the new campaign.
Spurs on the other hand, are currently in spectacular shape having managed to pick themselves up after their defeat to Everton in their season opener.
But it was the hosts who go things off a flying start, winning a penalty moments into the match after Davison Sanchez fouled Anthony Martial in the dangerous area.
Bruno Fernandes stepped up to convert the spotkick, with the Portuguese rolling his effort into the corner.
