Offer Not Enough! United Turn Down Juventus Bid For Matteo Darmian.
Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is set to leave Old Trafford after a frustrating four-year spell at the club.
The Dutchman failed to impress Mourinho with his performances whenever he was given the chance to feature in games for the Red Devils.
Due to his uninspiring displays at the back of the pitch, the Portuguese manager decides to stop using him in matches as he prefers Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia ahead of him, despite their respective ages.
As a result of his lack of regular game-time, the full-back has decided to call it quit at Old Trafford this summer.
Serie A giants Juve are believed to have tabled a bid for his signature last month but the offer was reportedly turned down by the Red Devils, who claimed that it wasn’t suitable for the player’s quality.
According to Italian media Calcionews24, Juve’s sporting director Fabio Paratici met with the Dutchman’s agent in Milan to discuss over the possibility of luring him to Turin ahead of the next season.
The same report further reveals that the Serie A champions have tabled £13m for his signature but United remain keen on receiving £20m from the club.
After signing Ronaldo from Real Madrid in a £105m contract on Tuesday, Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri is now looking to upgrade his defensive setup before the next season begins.
