Jose Mourinho will add Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot to his Roma squad in the January transfer window, according to reports in Italy.
It was reported that the Red Devils were trying to bring Atletico Madrid right-back Kieran Trippier to the club in the summer, only for the defender to prove too expensive.
The Portugal international has been limited to just 54 minutes in all competitions this season and now Italian publication Calciomercato claim that Mourinho is keen on his compatriot.
Mourinho was the manager who brought him to Old Trafford and Calciomercato claim that he still ‘really likes’ the right-back.
The Roma board are ‘studying the strategy’ as they weigh up a loan move in the January window with an option to buy the defender.
Calciomercato adds: ‘Dalot would represent more than an alternative to [Rick] Karsdorp and has those characteristics that Mourinho is looking for.’
