Manchester United have agreed a deal to bring in Portugal Under-21 international Diogo Dalot from FC Porto, according to reports.
United are set to pay FC Porto €20million for the full back, who will be more than looking forward to linking up with manager Jose Mourinho.
In recent reports, Manchester United had already proposed personal terms for the 19-year-old, and on Tuesday night it emerged on social media that the deal looked likely to go ahead.

Diogo Dalot broke into FC Porto’s first team in earlier this year, playing six Primeira Liga games at left-back, also playing against Liverpool. Dalot had normally been deployed at right-back for Porto’s B team. Back in October 2016, he was named FC Porto’s young player of the year.
According to a report from Duncan Castles and the Daily Record, Dalot is fast over the ground, powerful on the ball, and with a good delivery going forward.
Juventus, FC Barcelona, Napoli and Real Madrid were also interested in signing the youngster, but Old Trafford will be his destination.
The release cause was €20m in which Manchester United have triggered and agreed terms.
FC Porto manager Sergio Conceicao has described Diogo Dalot as “a player of great quality”
