, Dalot said:

"I like to become more and more complete.

"The Italians love football, they always talk about it and being part of this culture has been a fantastic experience. And on the pitch, I feel I have improved a lot tactically.

"There are some defensive aspects I learned here and it was fantastic to develop these qualities too.

"That’s not the only thing either, as I improved in pressing high and recovering the ball as soon as possible. Very useful stuff. I say that I had a fantastic year and met beautiful people.

"It was a real pleasure to play for Milan but now I think about the Euros and I really don’t know [on his future] what will happen."

Dalot joined the Red Devils from Porto during Mourinho’s spell at Old Trafford with a £19 million ($27m) contract, but he was struggling under Solskjaer before moving to Milan and making 33 appearances for them with two goals and three assists.
