According to a recent report by the Guardian, Manchester United right-back, Matteo Darmian is closing in on a loan switch to Juventus during this winter transfer period with the Serie A giants also having an option to sign him permanently for €8m (£7.1m) next summer.
The same report has also revealed that the Italian defender’s contract at Old Trafford is set to expire at the end of this campaign, but the Red Devils will activate the option to extend his current deal for a further year in order to recoup a fee for the talented full-back.
Darmian has found first-team opportunities hard to come by at the Theatre of Dreams this season. At 29, the former Torino defender is not getting any younger and needs to play regularly if he wants to make the best out of the peak years of his career. He is currently playing at his prime so a potential move to Turin could be an ideal opportunity for him to reignite his career away from England.
The Italian talent is incredibly versatile due to his ability to play in multiple positions at the back. Darmian primarily operates as a right-back but can also be deployed on the other side as a left-back or down the middle as a centre-back.
On his day, the 29-year-old can be regarded as one of the best attacking full-backs in European football. However, he has often struggled to find consistency wearing the red jersey of Man United. The Italian has also been plagued with a lot of injuries which has derailed his career at Old Trafford.
Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team could benefit from letting the defender leave this month as they could use the money generated from his potential sale next summer to strengthen other areas of their squad. Juventus will also be a perfect fit for Darmian as he would get an excellent opportunity to show what he is capable of at one of the biggest clubs back in his homeland.
The potential departure of Darmian, even if it is on a temporary basis, seems like a good move for all parties so United should undoubtedly let him go and promote young players such as Diogo Dalot to their first-team to cope with his departure.
