Diogo Dalot Pens New long-term deal with Manchester United

Diogo Dalot has signed a new contract which will see him remain at Manchester United until June 2028.

His new deal has the option to be extended by a further year.

The 24-year-old, who joined United from Porto in 2018, has put pen to paper on an initial five-year deal on the back of making 42 appearances under manager Erik ten Hag this season.

Dalot, speaking after signing his new deal, said: “Playing for Manchester United is one of the highest honours that you can have in football. We have shared some fantastic moments over the past five years, and I’ve grown so much and my passion for this incredible club has only increased since the day that I joined.

“As a group of players, we all feel like we are at the start of a special journey right now. I can assure you that I will dedicate myself relentlessly to helping this group to achieve our aims and make the fans proud of this team. That drive continues this week with everyone intensely focused on preparations for the FA Cup final.”

John Murtough, United’s football director, added: “Diogo is an excellent defender, with a great combination of pace, strength and versatility. He has consistently developed, improving year-on-year since joining the club in 2018.

“Diogo’s work ethic and professionalism is superb; the way in which he prepares himself every day in order to perform at his highest level is exactly what we all want from a Manchester United player.

“Diogo has a strong mentality, high standards and a great personality, and we are delighted that he will remain an important member of the squad for the coming years.”

Dalot has faced stiff competition from fellow right-back Aaron Wan-Bissaka during the second half of the season.

The Portuguese will be hoping he is favoured ahead of Wan-Bissaka on Saturday when United face rivals Manchester City in the FA Cup final at Wembley.
