Juventus had to win this season’s League trophy the hard way as they were given a run for their money by Napoli who were the runner-up in the Serie A League table.
Though the Naples lacked the strength and willpower to battle till the end of the season, they truly mount pressure on the Turin based club for the Scuddeto trophy this season.
Having seen how the team struggled at the back of the pitch all through this term, Juventus hierarchy are reportedly set to bolster the defensive set-up ahead of next season by signing Manchester United want-away defender Matteo Darmian in the summer.
The Dutchman hasn’t been featuring under José Mourinho since the Portuguese took over the Red Devils managerial post last season and he is ready to move on with his career elsewhere.
According to Calciomercato, the Old Lady are ready to give the player more game-time next season should he decide to switch to Turin in the summer. The Italian publication also report that Juventus and Manchester United are in the final phase of discussion.
Darmian is presently valued at £20m by the Red Devils but the Maximiliano Allegri’s side are not willing to pay that much on the player whose stock has highly depreciated due to his lack of first-team opportunities. The Bianconeri are only ready to release £10m for his signature when the summer transfer window begins in few weeks.
