Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has ruled out the signing of players in certain positions in his squad but the Portuguese manager is sure to let some of his squad members leave in order to balance his books.
Italy and Manchester United right back Matteo Darmian has agreed to switch the fortress of Old Trafford for the Juventus Stadium after reaching a verbal agreement with the Old Lady, according to report.
Italians are known to be tough-tacklers and so Man United fans greeted the news of Darmian’s move to their club with a warm cheer in the summer of 2015 after a four year spell with Torino. The 28-year-old Italian was signed by Luis Van Gaal and he was a regular feature for the Red Devils in his debut season.
Since the appointment of Jose Mourinho in the penultimate season, Darmian has seen his stock drastically reduced – he has featured in only eight Premier League games for United this term, playing second fiddle to Valencia who is not a natural full back, and he seem to have made up his mind about his future.
According to Sportwitness who cited a report from Gazzetta dello Sport, Darmian have held talks with Juventus and he has agreed a deal, though verbally.
Mourinho is in the market for a midfielder that will replace Michael Carrick and that is the focus of the Red Devils. However, players like Daley Blind, Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, Marcos Rojo and Marouane Fellaini have been tipped to exit United bit that largely depends on Mourinho sanctioning their exit.
Darmian is only valued at 12,00 Mill. € according to transfermarkt but Ed Woodward will certainly be holding out for more.
