    Nice. Two down....

    I genuinely love when we sign highly rated young players I've never heard of, by far the most exciting type of signing imo.

    A talented youngster being signed under Mourinho? But.. but.. he never signs young players etc.

    Looking forward to him hopefully displacing Valencia at some point.

    Hoping this means we'll have a full back whose crosses beat the first man!

    Excellent. Not a lot to judge him on yet but I'm all for any new full backs.

    Those that have seen him play - do you expect him to take a few months/years to settle, or could he possibly fight for a starting spot this season? Is he as good as Fosu-Mensah?

    Top player, always rated him. Now let’s see how he does on a bigger stage!

    Big praise from the manager. Also a 6yr contract(more or less) :eek:. The club is showing Dalot of faith in this player.

    Exactly the kind of RB signing I wanted us to make. If he works out then the price is superb too.

    Control Alt Dalot. Hopfully better than Control Alt Ritchie DeLaet.

    Very excited about this guy. Genuinely intrigued to see how Mourinho uses him this season.

    This might be the most exciting singing we will make this summer. Always love the hungry young talents with the hunger to succeed instead of mercenaries.
    Can't wait to see him in action.

    I dont know anything about him except he’s young!

    Will he replace Valencia straight away or is he a signing for the future?

    Sorry to disappoint but his and his father's hunger is money. If some day he feels he needs a new bonus or another club comes sniffing with higher wages, then be prepared, he's not less mercenary than any.

    For those asking about the player. @broccoli @SCP and @Peyroteo shared their thoughts about him in the earlier thread.

    Theres always something about signing these highly rated talents that make them in my opinion the most exciting. I remember when we signed Martial for what was a substantial amount of money for someone who played less than 50 professional games in their career. Then he came on against Liverpool and scored on his debut and made me shit my pants.

    Looking forward to this one! Welcome diogo! For anyone who's seen him play what is he like?

    We don't know anything about that yet. He might have just moved for money.

    This is good. We have more depth at the fullback position now. Aside from Shaw or Darmian, we haven’t had a natural full back play for the club in quite a while.

    Let’s hope he kicks on

    Hopefully all the over dramatic posters going bezerk when Liverpool signed Fabinho can get back in their box. Although give it a week without anyone else, I’m sure they will be back in force.

    First #FredtheRed and now Dalot. We've basically signed them so our social media department could have a field day.

    Welcome Diogo :drool::devil:

    Hypothetically speaking do you think that he would be played as an RW with AV as RB or vice versa?

    I've never seen this guy play but he's obviously very highly rated and plays in a position where we need to improve, so I'm very happy that we've signed him. Just hoping that he can stay fit and become a regular in the starting eleven.

    That’s a very good fee. It’s been a long while since we had a signing like this, where it feels like we got value instead of being ripped off in today’s crazy market prices.
