Juventus, Napoli, Roma want Darmian

Reports in Italy suggest Juventus, Napoli and Roma are interested in Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian.

The defender joined the Red Devils from Torino in 2015, but has struggled to hold down a place in the first team since Jose Mourinho replaced Louis van Gaal on the bench.

The Italian international has made just two Premier League starts so far this season, and was criticised for his marking when Basel scored their winner in the Champions League last night.

According to calciomercato.it, Darmian could return to Italy, with interest from Juve, Napoli and Roma.

The Bianconeri need a replacement for Stephan Lichtsteiner, whose contract expires at the end of this season, while the Partenopei are without Faouzi Ghoulam after a cruciate ligament injury.

Darmian offers versatility, as he can play on either side of the defence or even in the centre, and he’s capable of operating as a full-back or a wing-back.
