Jose Mourinho eager to sign Manchester United player in January. Mourinho believes player will improve Roma

According to Italian media outlet Calciomercato via Daily Mail, former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is eager to sign Manchester United defender Diogo Dalot for Roma in January.

Mourinho has identified Dalot as his main target to improve his options at right-back.

The Manchester United right-back has experience of playing in the Serie A, having spent last season on loan with AC Milan.

Mourinho was in charge of United when Dalot signed for the club in June 2018. However, Mourinho was sacked in December that year, with Dalot making just six appearances under him as he missed a host of games due to injury.

Since returning to Manchester United from his loan spell at AC Milan, Dalot has made just two substitute appearances for Manchester United with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s preferring Aaron Wan-Bissaka at right-back.
