Getting in top physical shape will only help Dalot prepare for the physical rigours of the Premier League.

He has an intriguing season ahead, his second at United.


Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s arrival could limit Dalot’s starts at right-back, but he will get chances on the left too.

Last season he showed he can play on the wing too, just like Cristiano Ronaldo once did for United.

We look forward to seeing what he can do over the coming season.
