However, former Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho is preparing to ‘accelerate’ efforts to sign him in January, according to Corriere dello Sport.

Dalot was bought to Manchester by Mourinho in 2018 when the player was a teenager.

Corriere dello Sport say Roma have prepared a loan offer in the value of 1.5m euros with an additional 15m euros based on appearances.

Dalot, 22, was slammed by United fans recently for hugging his Man City rivals in the tunnel before the derby loss earlier this month.

One supporter wrote: “Dalot hugging City players – get this man out of my club.”

This fan may get their wish in January if Mourinho has any say in it.

Dalot already has a decent reputation in Italy.

The Portugal defender spent last season on loan at AC Milan.

He scored one goal in 21 appearances for the San Siro side.

With Dalot in the team, Milan reached the knock-out phases of the Europa League – where they lost to United in the last 16.

And he will be hoping to prove to Mourinho that he can perform again in Serie A.

Dalot has five caps for Portugal, including the goalless draw in Dublin this week against Ireland.
