According to a recent report by Manchester Evening News, Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian is close to sealing a move away from Old Trafford before the European transfer window shuts down on September 2nd.
The same source has also claimed that the Premier League defensive ace is inching closer towards a move to an Italian club after falling out of favour at the Theatre of Dreams last season.
Darmian’s Disappointing Career In The English Top-Flight
The 29-year-old made just seven appearances for the Red Devils in the previous campaign and played a total of 533 minutes across all competitions. Darmian is in dire need of regular first-team football if he intends to reignite his career in European football.
A move away from England makes sense for the Italy international at this stage of his playing career. At 29, Darmian still has a few years left in him to play at the highest level. Hence, a potential switch to a Serie A club could turn his fortunes for the better in the coming years.
The Legnano-born talent has represented Italy in 36 international matches and has scored once for his country thus far. The former Torino defender needs to earn regular playing time at the club level once again if he wants to participate in more matches for his nation in the future.
What Does The Italian Full-Back Offer On The Field?
Darmian is a moderately paced full-back who is a capable defender inside his own half. The Italian talent can also be a decent outlet for his side down the right flank as he can complete some lung-bursting dribbles in the opposition half. However, the former Serie A prospect is currently on the fringes at Old Trafford and will need to secure regular playing time once again if he wants to prove his doubters wrong.
Darmian’s Switch To Italy: Good Move For All Parties?
Thus, it makes sense for everyone involved if Darmian made a move to Italy this summer in search of regular first-team opportunities. Man United will also benefit from having the Italian off their wage bill as they look to build towards a brighter future under Solskjaer’s reign.
