The Defender went through United's medical successfully on Tuesday and has now joined the club on a five year deal, becoming the second signing for the club after the Brazilian Fred.

Jose Mourinho Said 

"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."

Diogo Dalot 

Manchester United is an unbelievable opportunity for me. I have grown up in Porto's academy and I am so thankful for everything they have done for me. But the chance of coming to the biggest club in the world is something I just couldn't turn down.

"I'm excited about working with Jose Mourinho and learning everything I can from such a successful coach. I am looking forward to playing alongside the fantastic players in the squad."
