Diogo Dalot has signed a new deal with the club until June 2028, with a one-year extension option.
Dalot has had a solid season under new United coach Erik ten Hag. The Dutchman has been eager to complete a transfer for the Portugal international. Dalot is mostly a right full-back but can also play on the left side.
After months of negotiating with the player and his advisors, United have reached an agreement. Now, Dalot has finally signed on the dotted line to extend his contract beyond next summer. The original contract was set to expire in 2023. But United used a one-year extension option in the contract to allow them more time to secure a long-term arrangement.

The deal has finally been reached, which is a significant boost to United’s summer ambitions. Marcus Rashford and David de Gea are likely to follow Dalot’s lead. They are likely to extend their own contracts in the near future.
Dalot told United’s official channels: “Playing for Manchester United is one of the highest honors you can have in football.”
“Over the last five years, we’ve shared some fantastic moments, and I’ve grown so much, and my passion for this incredible club has only grown since the day I joined.”
“As a group of players, we all feel like we’re at the beginning of something special right now.”I can guarantee you that I will work tirelessly to assist our group reach its goals and make the supporters proud of this squad.
“That drive continues this week, with everyone intensely focused on preparations for the FA Cup final.”
United will seek to complete a domestic cup double when they face Manchester City in the FA Cup final this weekend at Wembley. Dalot is currently doubtful to play, with Ten Hag favoring opponent Aaron Wan-Bissaka in previous encounters.
