The 23-year-old picked up a hamstring injury playing for Portugal at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, when they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Morocco in the quarter-finals.
The right-back has been absent from the two United fixtures since the major tournament came to an end.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka, who replaced Dalot in those matches after the restart against Burnley in the Carabao Cup and Nottingham Forest in the Premier League has massively impressed – even earning praise from boss Erik ten Hag.
His return to first-team training could put him back in contention for the Red Devils trip to face Wolves in the early kick-off on Saturday.
Although he may have to wait for his opportunity to return, given Wan-Bissaka’s impressive performances in United’s last two matches, after playing just a total of four minutes prior to that so far this season.

Dalot is not the only player that has returned to training, making themselves available for selection, as centre-back Victor Lindelof also returned to training – having missed the win over Forest due to illness.
The illness has spread throughout the squad with Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay also being affected by it.
Lindelof’s return will be another huge boost for boss ten Hag, given that he had to deploy left-back Luke Shaw in the heart of defence in mid-week, with a lack of options at his disposal.
The Sweden international could be back in the squad for the trip to the Molineux, while World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez could also return after returning to Carrington on Wednesday after an extended break following his success in Qatar.
