Jose Mourinho made a prediction about Manchester United loan star Diogo Dalot which is yet to come true as the Italian’s agent has made a bold claim.
The Portuguese boss brought his compatriot in from Porto three years ago, having won the Primeira Liga with them.
While an early injury put him out, he became regular before the 58-year-old’s sacking in December 2018.
While he played out the season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka put him out of consideration.
It has seen Dalot spend the season on loan with AC Milan, making 27 appearances for the Serie A giants as well as even scoring two goals, leading to speculation the move could be permanent.
And agent Carlos Conclaves has claimed that the 22-year-old will hit new heights next season.
Speaking to Italian outlet CalcioMercato, Dalot’s representative said: “Diogo has a contract with Manchester United until 30 June 2023.
“All decisions regarding his future will be made in due course.
“There is still a lot to be decided in the Italian league and Diogo is only focused on Milan's immediate goals, which are to finish the 2020/21 season in the best possible way, earning a spot in the Champions League.
“But whatever the future, whatever decision is made, it's guaranteed that Diogo will continue to play in a great European club.”
But it also echoes similar words from Mourinho, who raved about Dalot for his part in a 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Old Trafford in December 2018.
“All my defenders were dead by the end,” Mourinho said after the match.

“The kid Diogo, fantastic. I think Gary Neville must be thinking that Manchester United now has a very good right back for 10 years.”
With the manager getting sacked two weeks after the game, Solskjaer has not taken the same view towards the full-back.
Dalit faced his parent side when Milan were knocked out of the Europa League in the round-of-16 while they sit third in Serie A.
