Darmian: Juve, Inter, Napoli…

Manchester United and Italy full-back Matteo Darmian claims ‘I could move to Juventus, Inter or Napoli’ this summer.

It was reported on Sunday that Juve had pulled out of a deal for Darmian, but the 28-year-old appeared to play down that rumour as he namechecked the Bianconeri, as well as their Serie A rivals.

“United are a top club, but wanting to be a starter is normal,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I have one more year on my contract and we haven’t talked about a renewal. My agent knows what I want.

“Returning to Italy? It could be to Juve, Inter, Napoli or someone else, it’s not for me to say.

“In any case, I’d only move to the club who offered me the best solution. My doors are open.

“Last year? I was close, but United didn’t want me to go. It was a sign of esteem, plus I wanted to play under Mou for another year.

“Premier League or Serie A? There’s a comparison to be made technically, but we don’t have the stadia and money makes a difference.

“Still, [Serie A clubs] are on the right track. They’re doing well, so we have to trust them.”
