Porto defender Diogo Dalot has completed a move to Manchester United after signing a five-year contract, the club has announced.

The 19-year-old, who reportedly had a £17.4million release clause in his contract, emerged from Porto’s academy to make his Primeira Liga debut last season.

United manager Jose Mourinho told the club’s official website, www.manutd.com: “Diogo is an extremely talented young defender with all the qualities to quickly become a great player for this club.

“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.”
