Manchester United’s January transfer window so far has been predictable quiet.
With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer only at the helm on an interim basis, it was always unlikely that he’d get money to spend. However, it looks as though the club could be about to thin their squad out a little bit…
In an exclusive, Calciomercato are claiming that over the last few hours, Juventus have opened talks with United about the possible transfer of Matteo Darmian.
The Italian, now 29, has found opportunities limited, and the Turin side would like to take Darmian on an initial loan deal worth €3million, with the potential option to buy him outright for €8million.
When he first joined, it looked like Darmian had single-handedly solved our right-back woes, but after a good few months it went rapidly downhill. That’s not to say he’s a bad player, as he obviously is talented. Sometimes, it just doesn’t work out for some footballers in certain situations.
This would be a fair fee and a great deal for all involved. Darmian is heading back to his homeland, United are getting some of what they paid for Darmian back, and Juventus are acquiring a good player.
Hopefully, it’s wrapped up in the coming days and Darmian heads back to Italy and shows Europe just how good he is.
