Matteo Darmian has been a transfer target for Serie A club Parma before the end of the summer.
Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is reportedly close to leaving Old Trafford on a permanent transfer.
The experienced Italian was signed during Louis van Gaal‘s era but struggled to make an impact after initially impressing for a few weeks.
Darmian was seen as a useful, versatile defender capable of reading the game and playing in a ‘no-nensense’ fashion.
The former Torino man has been out of United’s starting XI picture for quite some time that it’s bizarre to think he renewed his contract despite a lack of minutes. As a result, the Italy international has already been linked with Juventus, Inter and Roma, but the €10 million price-tag put everyone off.
Now Manchester United have agreed a deal to sell Matteo Darmian to Parma, according to Sky Italy‘s Gianluca Di Marzio. The Red Devils have agreed to sell the defender for a staggering sum of €1.5 million, way lower than their previous asking price.
The defender will be having a medical at the Italian club tomorrow, ahead of his switch to Serie A. After that, he will sign a three-year contract with the Gialloblu, or a two-year contract with an option for an additional one.
Damian’s future at the club has been the subject of speculation after he failed to impress the Old Trafford crowd. In addition, he could become the second United defender to leave the club following the closure of the English transfer window at the start of the month.
