The 21-year-old joined Milan on a season-long loan from Manchester United the day before deadline day and is yet to make an appearance for the Serie A outfit due to the international break.
However, Tuttosport claims that Milan are ready to reopen talks with the Red Devils over turning the loan deal permanent in January.
Diogo Dalot was AC Milan’s last signing of the summer window, and although it was just a loan, there will be contacts over a permanent deal.
That is according to Tuesday’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanLive) which claims that the Rossoneri will meet with Manchester United during January to discuss the possibility of extending Dalot’s stay beyond June 2021.
Dalot fell out of favour at Manchester United under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, making just one Premier League start since May 2019 before being sent out on a loan to Serie A earlier this month.
United would be open to selling the Portugal Under-21 international if a suitable offer arrives, although they would want to at least recoup the £20m they paid to sign the Portuguese two years ago.
Stefano Pioli will almost certainly get plenty of use out of the 21-year-old in the coming weeks given the hectic schedule that awaits over the next few weeks and months.
Dalot could make his AC Milan debut during this weekend’s derby with Inter Milan, although that fixture is in doubt due to a coronavirus outbreak in the Inter squad.
