Darmian to Inter via Parma?

Matteo Darmian just joined Parma from Manchester United, but it might not be for long, as Inter reportedly ‘booked’ him for January.

The full-back had been on Inter and Juventus radars for several seasons, but Manchester United always refused to lower their €12m price-tag.

It was therefore something of a surprise when he was allowed to leave for a reported €1.5m on deadline day, although the English media put the sum at closer to €4.5m.
