Three-time European champions Manchester United have rejected an offer from Italian Serie A champions Juventus for defender Matteo Darmian.
According to Italian transfer news portal Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus made a loan offer of €2m for Matteo Darmian with an option to make the transfer permanent at the end of the loan contract for just €8m.
The Juventus proposal was swiftly rejected by the Red Devils who were holding out for a €4m loan fee in addition to the condition that the Italians must sign the 29-year-old at the end of his loan move.
Apart from Juventus, Italian international defender Matteo Darmian has also been strongly linked with Serie A giants Inter Milan.
Darmian has been on the fringes of the Manchester United team for the majority of his footballing career at Old Trafford.
The Italian fullback is a utility player that can effectively play as a left-back or a right.
He signed for Manchester United from Italian Serie A side Torino in the summer of 2015 while Dutch tactician Louis Van Gaal (LVG) was still the manager.
Jose Mourinho replaced LVG in 2016 but Darmian still failed to break into the team.
The same trend has continued into the interim regime of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Old Trafford.
