Manchester United full-back Diogo Dalot has revealed he is in talks with the club over a new contract.

The 23-year-Old old’s Trafford contract was set to expire in June, but United recently exercised a 12-month extension clause to keep Dalot at the club, just as they did with Marcus Rashford, Fred, and Luke Shaw.

The player himself has now disclosed that talks are taking place to strike an arrangement that will “benefit” both parties. Mp3bullet recently reported that United seek to negotiate a new long-term contract with Dalot, with the Portuguese international being a major favourite of manager Erik ten Hag.

“We are in a position to say that we are negotiating [my contract] and how both parties will benefit, but it is no secret that I am happy to be here. I love this club, I love to play for this club so we will see how things go,” Dalot told The United Stand YouTube channel.

“Progressively we are in a good direction as a team, for me this is the most important part and hopefully individually I can continue to help the team as I am doing.”

Dalot has ousted Aaron Wan-Bissaka as United’s first-choice right-back and has put in a number of impressive performances this season.

He has spoken positively about the influence of Ten Hag following his arrival as manager, claiming the Dutchman has given him the ‘confidence’ to believe in his own abilities.

The former AC Milan loanee also participated in a press conference for Manchester United fans on Monday. He answered questions from fans before Tuesday’s Carabao Cup quarterfinal match against Charlton Athletic and reaffirmed that the team’s goals under Ten Hag are still as high-scoring as ever.

“My aspirations will always be [that] being at Manchester United you need to have big ambition. You need to win everything, every competition that you are in, but we also know that our reality is that we have to be cautious,“ he said.

“We are making progress, we are in the right direction and [that is] the way that we have to approach, especially this season, because I think we have good positions to win something and, at the end, we want to be with the mindset of, ‘this season, we did everything we could to win this season and playing finals and winning trophies’.”
