Diogo Dalot has signed a new five-year contract with Manchester United, extending his stay at Old Trafford until June 2028, with an option for a further year. The 24-year-old Portugal international moved to United from Porto in 2018 and has since made 107 appearances for the club.
Dalot has had a breakthrough season under Erik ten Hag, making 42 appearances in all competitions, including the League Cup final win over Newcastle in February and the full 120 minutes of the FA Cup semi-final victory over Brighton on penalties. He is now set to feature in the FA Cup final against Manchester City at Wembley on Saturday, as United look to add a second piece of silverware to their collection this season.
Speaking about his new deal, Dalot said: “Playing for Manchester United is one of the highest honours that you can have in football. We have shared some fantastic moments over the past five years and I’ve grown so much – and my passion for this incredible club has only increased since the day that I joined. I can assure you that I will dedicate myself relentlessly to helping this group to achieve its aims and make the fans proud of this team.”
United’s football director John Murtough added: “Diogo is an excellent defender with a great combination of pace, strength and versatility. He has consistently developed, improving year-on-year since joining the club in 2018.” Dalot has also earned 11 senior caps for Portugal, including at the Qatar World Cup in December, which triggered an extension to his previous deal at United.
