New Manchester United signing Diogo Dalot will miss the start of the season after undergoing surgery to repair meniscus damage in his right knee.
The 19-year-old has been sidelined since suffering a training ground injury back in April, but Jose Mourinho didn’t want to risk missing out on the highly-rated defender. "Dalot is injured; we knew that but we didn't want to lose him because of that," revealed the United boss. "He is recovering really well. He will not be ready for the start of the season but we think he'll be ready for September." Dalot cut his teeth playing for Porto B before finally making his first senior start in February, a 5-1 thrashing of minnows Portimonense, in which he provided two-assists. Coach Sergio Conceicao kept faith in the versatile full-back a week later for the top-of-the-table clash with Sporting Lisbon, and he didn't disappoint, starring in the 2-1 win. Dalot impressed the onlooking United scouts just days later as Porto played out a goalless draw in the Champions League at Anfield. Jul 19 - 2:03 AM
