Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian in talks with Juventus

Matteo Darmian could be leaving Old Trafford this summer

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian could move to Juventus this summer after his agent met with the Italian club’s sporting director.

According to Sky in Italy, Darmian’s agent has met with Fabio Paratici to discuss a possible move away and negotiations are on-going.

The 28-year-old joined United ahead of the 2015/16 season and made 28 Premier League appearances under former manager Louis van Gaal, helping the club win the 2016 FA Cup.

However, his playing time has dropped dramatically since the appointment of Jose Mourinho, making just 17 appearances in all competitions last season.

Darmian has the option to sign on for an extra year at Old Trafford when his current deal expires at the end of next season but previously told Sky in Italy he was “happy” Juventus were interested in him.

Sky Sports News reported in May that United are willing to listen to offers for Damian and Daley Blind.
