Darmian ready to leave Manchester United

Italian defender Matteo Darmian is set to leave Manchester United before the European transfer window closes.

That is following United receiving an inquiry from an unnamed club, believed to be Parma, about the availability of the 29-year old.

The Italian international, who has 36 senior caps for his country, moved to United from Torino in July 2015 for a fee of £12.7 million. First choice right back for much of his first season at the club, he has increasingly struggled for game time since, and has only played 13 times for the first team since December 2017.

He has not featured at all in any of United’s first-team squads so far this season and, with his contract due to expire next summer, this would seem an optimum time for United to cash-in on the player.

Darmian wanted to leave Old Trafford last summer, but an injury to captain at the time Antonio Valencia made United keep him for another season.
