Dalot first appeared with the first team in competitive games on 13 October 2017, starting in a 6–0 away win over Lusitano G.C. for the season's Taça de Portugal.[7] He first played in the Primeira Liga on 18 February 2018, coming on as a 75th-minute substitute in a 5–0 home routing of Rio Ave FC.[8]

Manchester United[edit]

Dalot signed for Premier League club Manchester United on 6 June 2018 on a five-year contract for a fee of £19 million.[9] He made his debut on 19 September 2018 in an away UEFA Champions League group stage match against Swiss side Young Boys.[10]

International career[edit]

Dalot helped Portugal win the 2016 UEFA European Under-17 Championship, scoring twice in five games in Azerbaijan including once in the final against Spain.[11] The same year, he helped the under-19 team reach the quarter-finals of the same competition.[12]

Dalot represented the nation at the 2017 FIFA U-20 World Cup,[13] starting in all the matches in an eventual quarter-final exit.[14]
