Barcelona and Juventus are keen on making a move for Manchester United right-back Diogo Dalot, but the Portuguese international wants to extend his contract at the club, according to reports.
The 23-year-old has established himself as first choice at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag, as the Dutchman’s new-look defence of Dalot, Raphael Varane, Lisandro Martinez and Tyrell Malacia continues to impress.
Dalot also shone for Portugal during the international break, scoring twice during their 4-0 win over Czech Republic last weekend.

His bright performances have attracted the attention of several clubs including Barcelona and Juventus, according to MEN Sport.
The Portuguese defender’s contract is up at the end of the season, although United do have the option to extend the deal by a further year.
The report goes onto state that despite the interest from elsewhere, Dalot wants to commit his future to the Red Devils.
Dalot signed for United back in 2018, joining from Porto for £17.4m. He has gone onto make 73 appearances for the club, while he spent the 2020-21 season out on loan with AC Milan.
He has generally played second fiddle to Aaron Wan-Bissaka during his time at Old Trafford, but usurped the former Crystal Palace youngster during the second half of last season.

Dalot struggled for game time under former boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but has since taken his chance under Ralf Rangnick and now Ten Hag.
The right-back has also won six caps for his national team and will hope to play a key role during the World Cup this winter, although he is likely to be behind Manchester City star Joao Cancelo in the pecking order.
United face arch rivals City this Sunday in the Manchester derby and a win would put them two points behind Pep Guardiola’s side with a game in hand.
