The Italian full-back has secured a move away from Manchester United.

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has joined Italian Serie A side Parma on a four-year deal.

Italy international Darmian, who arrived at Old Trafford from Torino in July 2015, made 92 appearances for United in all competitions, helping them to the FA Cup in his first season.

But the 29-year-old full back made only seven appearances for Manchester United last season and has not played at all this term under manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. In addition, United’s acquisition of Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer seemed to signal the end of Darmian’s time at Old Trafford.

A statement on United’s club website read: “Manchester United can confirm that defender Matteo Darmian has signed for Italian side Parma.

“Everyone at Manchester United would like to thank Matteo for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”

The 29-year-old touched down on Italian soil during the weekend.

“I’m happy to be back home, it’s an important opportunity to get back into the Italy team”, he told Sky Italia of his reported €1.5 million move.

Darmian’s transfer comes after fellow defender Chris Smalling left to join AS Roma on a season-long loan, while forwards Alexis Sanchez and Romelu Lukaku joined Inter Milan.
