Juventus close to agreeing deal for Manchester United defender

According to talkSPORT, Juventus are close to agreeing a deal to sign Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.

The 28-year old full-back finds himself out of favour at Old Trafford, and has been used infrequently by Jose Mourinho this season, making just one Premier League appearance since the start of the year.

Now it looks like his sojourn at Old Trafford may be drawing to a close with the player set to return to Serie A. Darmian began his career at AC Milan, before a loan spell at Padova preceded a move to Torino.  He spent 4 years in Turin before moving to Manchester United in a £12.7 million deal in the summer of 2015.

He was a regular member of the team under Louis van Gaal, but has found first team action harder to come by under Mourinnho and, frustrated by his lack of opportunities, is now ready to move back to Italy.

Darmian has 36 full international caps for Italy.

He loves all sports but football is his abiding passion, and he still has dreams every now and then about scoring the winning goal in a Wembley Cup Final, even though his playing days are long gone. He follows most major leagues, across Europe at least, and has a favoured team in each. When he’s not watching, listening, reading or downloading podcasts about football, he spend his time worrying about his beloved Arsenal.
