Inter Milan Face Italian Competition For Man United Defender


Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan will have to see off competition from fellow top flight side Lazio in their quest to sign Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian in the current transfer window.

The Italian international defender is keen to leave Old Trafford in search of more first team opportunities according to La Gazzette dello Sport.

Matteo Darmian is a utility defender that can play either as a left-back or as a right-back but he has been on the fringes of the Manchester United team for the majority of his time with the Red Devils.

The 29-year-old has made over 20 appearances since the start of last season.

He’s behind the quartet of Luke Shaw, Ashley Young, Diogo Dalot and Antonio Valencia in the pecking order as far as the fullback positions at Manchester United are concerned.

Matteo Darmian became a Manchester United player in the summer of 2015 when the Red Devils secured his transfer from Italian side Torino.

Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal was the Manchester United manager when Darmian moved to the club.

Matteo Darmian has already talked up a possible return to Italy in his recent interview.

The Italian fullback confirmed that he’s homesick amidst the reported transfer interests from clubs like Inter Milan and Lazio.
