Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has talked up a possible return to Italy some weeks before the mid-season transfer window begins.
The Italian international fullback spoke about his desire to return to Italy in a chat with popular Italian media outlet calciomercato.
The 29-year-old confirmed his desire to move back to Italy while he was being asked whether or not he missed his native country.
Darmian also revealed that he bears no grudge against AC Milan when the player was asked about his thoughts ahead of their game against Torino on Sunday.
Matteo Darmian had a largely unsuccessful spell at AC Milan earlier in his career.
Torino and AC Milan are two of his former clubs.
He signed for Manchester United from Torino in a deal worth £12.7m in the summer of 2015.
Darmian signed a four-year contract then til the summer of 2019.
He has just six months left on his current Manchester United deal and that has prompted transfer talks linking him with a move out of the club.
Inter Milan have been touted as a potential transfer destination for him at the end of his Manchester United contract.
He can start to speak with foreign clubs about a potential free transfer move as from the 1st of January.
Man United told to sign THIS Chelsea star
English Premier League outfit Man United have been told to move in for Chelsea star N’Golo Kante in this summer transfer window.
The advice was given by Tony Cascarino who claims that the France international could be forced out of Chelsea if a huge bid is submitted for his signature.
It is widely believed that the former Leicester City midfielder is unhappy at Stamford Bridge as he was forced away from his natural defensive role by manager Maurizio Sarri to favour Jorginho.

The speculation adds that N’Golo Kante was a shadow of himself as a result of the treatment by the former Napoli boss.
However, Man United have been told of the possibility of securing the signature of the World Cup winner if they are willing to pay big.
Tony Cascarino on Times column says the Red Devils are in need of quality players as well as a transformation of mentality.
He stressed that many of the players act like they do Man United a favour for playing at Old Trafford and that is not a good mentality going forward.
Meanwhile, manager Ole Gunnar Solskajer has made it clear that he would be flushing some players out of the club as they have not shown commitment to playing for the club
Paul Pogba now at Madrid’s mercy, deal facing major twist
It has been suggested that France international Paul Pogba is no longer confident of landing his dream move to Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid in this summer transfer window.
It is no longer a secret that Paul Pogba wants to leave Man United to be with Real Madrid after claiming that he wishes to play under manager Zinedine Zidane.
The French boss has also made him a top target but there have been itches over negotiations between the two parties involved.

While the World Cup winner is demanding for an ambiguous weekly wage that Real Madrid are not willing to pay, the Spanish giants are also refusing to budge on their valuation of No.1 transfer target Paul Pogba.
This is reported to have placed the World Cup winner under undue pressure as there are fears that he will remain at Old Trafford if a deal fails to fall through.
However, the former club of the star midfielder Juventus remains another option as he is also being wanted at the club for a return.
Juventus are keen to work with the star player as new manager Maurizio Sarri made it clear that he succeeded at the West London outfit with Eden Hazard; he can also succeed at Juventus with Paul Pogba.
Man Utd £40m Short Of Valuation Slapped On Top Defensive Target
Three-time European champions Manchester United are in the transfer market for a new quality centre back but the Red Devils have so far been frustrated in the bid to meet their target.
Leicester City Harry Maguire is a top defensive target for Manchester United alongside the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly and Issa Diop.
Kalidou Koulibaly plays his club football for Italian Serie A giants Napoli at the moment, while Issa Diop plays his club football for fellow Premier League club West Ham United.
Manchester United tried to sign Harry Maguire last summer shortly after the former Hull City and Sheffield United defender impressed for the Three Lions of England at the 2018 FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.
The Red Devils were unable to sign him because of the £60m-70m asking price slapped on him.
Manchester United are back for him this summer but Leicester City have increased the asking price to £80m.
According to ESPN, Manchester United are still £40m short of the Leicester City valuation for Harry Maguire.
The England international has enjoyed a meteoric rise in English football since his move to Leicester City two years ago.
He joined the Foxes from relegated Hull City for a fee of around £17m, including add-ons, in the summer of 2017.
Juventus In Club-record Bid To Sign Paul Pogba
Italian Serie A giants Juventus are reportedly preparing a club-record bid for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

Premier League giants Manchester United have reportedly been rebuffed in their quest to sign West Ham United defender Issa Diop during this summer’s transfer window.
This is according to the report from popular English news outlet Metro which claimed that the Hammers have rejected a £40m bid for Issa Diop.
It was also revealed that Manchester United added an unnamed player to sweeten the deal only for them to meet a brickwall in West Ham United.
Young French defender Diop has only spent one season in English football but that has proven to be more than enough to convince Manchester United to sign him.
The centre back signed for West Ham United last summer after the East Londoners paid French Ligue 1 club, Toulouse, a whopping sum of £22m for his transfer.
Issa Diop formed a potent centre back partnership with Paraguayan international Fabian Balbuena before the latter suffered an injury in the middle of the Premier League season.
The ex-Toulouse defender represents a cheaper centre back option for Manchester United against the likes of Harry Maguire and Kalidou Koulibaly.
Leicester City defender Maguire is rated at £80m by his club, while Napoli star Koulibaly would set Manchester United back financially by over £100m.
Manchester United want to sign a quality centre back this summer and Issa Diop could be their man with the French player keen to swap West Ham United for the Theatre of Dreams.

However, Man United still stand a chance of signing the player should they move in for him as they have all it takes to meet with the demands of the team but the French Ligue 1 outfit are also keen and can act fast to win the deal in this summer window.
