The right-back left Fintas Football School for Porto at the age of nine and has decided to pay them back
Diogo Dalot has surprised his former youth team by using his first Manchester United wage packet to buy them a new bus.
The right-back could be in action on Sunday when the Red Devils host rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford, a game you can hear live on talkSPORT from 2.05pm.
Dalot left Fintas Football School at nine to join FC Porto, but his youth side did not receive any compensation for the transfer.
The 20-year-old clearly felt he owed them something, and Fintas coordinator Luis Travossos revealed the lengths Dalot went to repaying them.
Travassos told Portuguese newspaper A Bola: “We spoke to Diogo by Skype. He was on the (Manchester United) coach on his way to the match.
“He told us to go outside, where we found a bus for the club.
“It was certainly a shock! He prepared everything secretly, and saved a part of his first salary in England for the surprise.
“To us, an institution with so many financial problems and so little resources, the gift was enormous.
“Every bit of help we receive is wonderful.”
Dalot signed for United in the summer for a reported £19million, but has made just four league starts for the Red Devils.
