According to II Gazzetta, Man United have agreed a 12m pound deal with Juventus for Matteo Darmian.
The 28-year-old has struggled for playing time under United manager Jose Mourinho and is expected to make the switch from Old Trafford in early June.
Darmian joined the Red Devils from Torino in 2015 and has gone on to make 85 appearances in all competitions, but game time has somewhat alluded him in the last 12 months.
The Italian international made only 5 EPL starts for United, with Antonio Valencia preferred at right-back and Ashley Young preferred at left-back. A move was necessary for more playing time.
And with Darmian having only one year left on his United contract, the club were forced to cash in early rather than risk losing him for nothing in 2019. United paid 12.7m pound for the defender’s signature 3 years ago and will recoup most of their losses with his sale.
Juventus have found a replacement for the departing Stephan Lichtsteiner so it’s a deal that benefits all parties.
