Diogo Dalot’s future at AC Milan could be decided on Friday night, with the Portuguese star waiting to discover the club’s long term plans for him.
Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer allowed the full back to join the Rossoneri on a season-long loan deal last year.
And after a slow start to life in Italy, Dalot has become somewhat of a regular at the San Siro, making 27 appearances in total.
However, there was no buy option inserted into the deal and Milan are yet to decide whether they will make a move at the end of the season.
According to Milan News 24, that decision could be made this weekend, with Dalot set to start against Sassuolo.
Dalot has found himself behind the pecking order to Theo Hernandez, but with the Frenchman ruled out, the 22-year-old has a chance to impress Milan bosses.
Solskjaer has kept the door open for a return to Old Trafford and the player himself has admitted that he is simply focusing on the end of this campaign – rather than concerning himself with what happens after it.
“This is not the time to decide, because it won’t be decided for now. So it’s not even worth thinking about how things will end,” he told O Jogo last month.
“I want to maintain the same line of thought that I have had so far, which is to focus on Milan, to be able to play and to be able to help the team until the end of the season.
“Then, we will see soon, depending on what is best for all parties. Now, quite frankly, I’m not focused on that, because it could attract extra pressure that’s not needed.

“I have to be calm, do what I have done so far and try every day to help this great club that has given me what I was looking for this season: to have enough minutes.
“For me, the most important thing at the moment is to look at the stats and see that I’m back to having a great series of games in a few months. That’s what I value most so far; that’s what made me come here.”
