Italian defender Matteo Darmian wants to leave Old Trafford this summer due to lack of regular action on the pitch since Mourinho took over as the boss.
The Portuguese manager didn’t rate the 28-year-old and he hasn’t given him much chance to prove his worth.
Many rumor mongers linked the defender with a return to the Serie A League this summer window but he didn’t complete his switch to his homeland.
According to Calciomercato in one of their transfer reports last month, Darmian was targeted by top Italian sides, including Napoli, Inter Milan, and Juventus but none of them could reportedly afford United’s price tag on the player’s signature.
Having passed their transfer deadline, Serie A clubs are not permitted to add any player to their squad until the winter transfer period in January.
Though La Liga clubs are still actively involve in the transfer market until 31st of this month, there are no bids for him from Spanish sides.
While confirming that the player won’t be leaving the team, Manchester United manager Mourinho revealed that Darmian is staying put at Old Trafford as he failed to this summer.
According to the manager, Darmian won’t blame the club for his inability to join a new club because he was given the platform to negotiate with his suitors over a possible move away from the Theater of Dreams before the start of the season.
“I don’t think he will go and he cannot have any bad feeling towards us because we opened the door for him in case his desire was to go,” Mourinho told reporters
