How Diogo Dalot's Inconsistent Performances Could Cost Him His Place on the Team

The once-promising performances of Diogo Dalot have failed to sustain themselves, and his form has regressed in recent times. The Portuguese defender, who joined Manchester United in 2018 from Porto, has struggled to maintain consistency on the pitch. He has shown signs of being shaky in his positional play, which has caused concern among the team's management and fans alike.

Adding to Dalot's woes is the fact that his current contract with Manchester United is set to expire in June 2024. It is widely known that the club has a reputation for being cautious with their financial dealings, and they are unlikely to be held to ransom over a new deal for the defender. As a result, Dalot could find himself in a difficult position if he pushes too hard for a lucrative extension.

Moreover, Manchester United has a reliable option in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who has stepped up his game recently. The former Crystal Palace defender has proven himself to be a dependable presence on the right side of the defense. With Wan-Bissaka in such fine form, it is possible that Dalot could be replaced entirely by the up-and-coming star.

To compound matters, Dalot's recent performance at Anfield did not do him any favors. In fact, it may have hindered his chances of staying with the club. If the team manager, Erik ten Hag, decides that there is a better alternative available, he is likely to pursue that option mercilessly.

Overall, the future seems uncertain for Diogo Dalot at Manchester United. Unless he can turn his fortunes around and show significant improvement, he may find himself without a club come the end of his contract. Meanwhile, the rise of Wan-Bissaka means that the team will not suffer too much even if they lose Dalot. Only time will tell what lies in store for the Portuguese defender.
