    From what I've read he's starting to train today which is two days after everyone else started (not in the WC of course) but will be ready for pre-season.

    The player I'm most excited to see in pre-season.

    I wonder if he’ll maybe mostly get a run out as a right winger.

    Times have changed.

    When seeing a winger is more depressing than seeing a fullback.

    Honestly our most exciting signing this summer. Which isn’t a ringing endorsement for the other 2....

    On the plus side, it's always good to have the majority of your business done before the preseason tour.

    Has fallen for Fred way too soon
    I'm pretty excited about Dalot AND Fred. We need to do more business, but that goes for every big club in Europe right now. This is what happens in World Cup summers.

    Not too worried at this point, WC summers are always slow on transfers. Most top teams haven’t been too active in the transfer market yet.

    Played a lot of games as a right winger, actually he’s almost played as many games as a winger as he has as a fullback.
    @luke511 hes looked decent there, has a decent cross so wouldn’t surprise me to see him get a few runs out there.

    I was referring to seeing it written as Stoke's 3rd choice keeper ;)

    But yes, it's always a slow one when there's a Summer tournament. There's about a month to go before the transfer window closes I think? Aug 9th?

    Are you purely just looking at his senior appearances for Porto or his career. Because he has.

    Yes, I'm looking at his senior appearances.

    Did you think McTomminay might play as a striker for us also?

    Edit: in case I'm being a little bit flippant here, read Jose's comments and decide if you think he'll be a winger for us

    “Diogo is an extremely talented young defender with all the qualities to quickly become a great player for this club," he said.

    "He has all the attributes that a full-back needs: physicality, tactical intelligence and technical quality, combined with a Porto Academy mentality which prepares players for the maturity they need at the professional level.

    “In his age group, he is the best full-back in Europe and we all believe he has a bright future ahead of him at Manchester United.”

    The first post I wrote I was just meaning “mostly” as in the sense of pre season if and when he plays. Can see why someone could take that as me meaning permanently.

    I do think he will become eventually probably our long term RB, but for pre season I wouldn’t be surprised if he gets a few outings as a winger since it’s a position he has played many a time. Even beyond that I wouldn’t be surprised to see him played in the league there for certain games.

    I wasn’t meaning that will be his position permanently for this team.

    Ok thanks, one of the youngest portuguese players I have higher hopes for the future, fair to say 5 years ago I thought Mangala would be a top class CB, I was completely wrong. :lol:

    Looks like he loves a step over. Looking forward to seeing this guy next season think he could be first choice right back for us by Christmas time.
