After Erik ten Hag’s best efforts to sign Sergiño Dest this summer so Diogo Dalot can have some serious competition in the right-back position, it looks like he will end up leaving Barcelona for AC Milan in a loan deal after the latest reports from the Italian reporters Fabrizio Romano and Gianluca Di Marzio.

Earlier today, the Manchester United manager said that he still counted on Aaron Wan-Bissaka for this season during a press conference, denying the rumors that suggested he wanted to sell him at all costs: “Of course, Aaron is still in my plans. We will keep him and he will stay in. So this squad will go from September, until the minimum January”.

Despite saying that, the Dutch manager hasn’t really relied on the English right-back in his first four matches in charge of the team. Diogo Dalot has been the starter in all games and he was only substituted by Wan-Bissaka in the 86th minute against Liverpool. Those are the only few minutes that he has been on the field this season.

In the meantime, the Red Devils’ loanee player Ethan Laird has started his campaign at Queens Park Rangers with a bang. In just four fixtures in the Championship, the 21-year-old full-back has become a fan favorite in his new club after scoring a goal and making one assist. He has been one of their best players so far this season.

The future is at home

Diogo Dalot is having his best season so far with Manchester United, and hopefully, he maintains the momentum rolling for the rest of the season. Aaron Wan-Bissaka is only 24 years old and could still get back to the level that he showed in his first years at Old Trafford. If he keeps playing poorly, then Ethan Laird will return from his loan next summer ready to fight for a place in the team.
