Juventus In Talks To Sign Man United Defender On Loan


Italian champions Juventus are reportedly in talks to sign Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian on loan until the end of the season.

According to the publication from The Guardian, the Old Lady will sign the Italian international player on loan for the remainder of this season.

It was revealed that the Italians will pay a loan fee of £2.6m for Darmian.

The 29-year-old is a versatile fullback that can play as a left-back or as a right-back.

Matteo Darmian signed for Manchester United from Italian Serie A club Torino in the summer of 2015 while Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal (LVG) was the Red Devils manager.

He was not able to nail down a spot in the Manchester United starting XI under Van Gaal, Jose Mourinho or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Darmian has played just one minute of league football since ex-Man United striker Solskjaer was appointed the interim manager at Old Trafford.

The aforementioned publication also said that Juventus will pay €8m (£7.1m) for the loan deal to be made permanent at the end of the season.

Matteo Darmian has six months left on his current Red Devils contract but the club will give him a one-year extension for the Red Devils to recoup some of the transfer fee spent on him.
