Matteo Darmian

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has officially completed his move to Serie A side Parma after four-year spell at the Old Trafford Stadium.

The Italian international joined United in 2015 from Torino during Van Gaal’s reign as United boss but he didn’t really feature prominently for the Red Devils.

In an official statement released by the club via their official website, the full-back has departed the Red Devils as he isn’t in Solskjaer’s plan for the campaign.

“Manchester United can confirm that defender Matteo Darmian has signed for the Italian side Parma. The full-back joined the Reds from Torino in 2015 and went on to make 92 appearances for the club.”

“In four years with us, Matteo scored one goal – a sublime volley against Crystal Palace in 2016, in a 2-0 victory at Old Trafford.

“Everyone at Manchester United would like to thank Matteo for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”

Having sealed his €4m move to Parma, Darmian becomes the fourth United player who moves to a Serie A club this summer.

First, it was Romelu Lukaku, who joined Inter Milan last month, while Alexis Sanchez completed his loan move to the San Siro outfit later in the month.

Chris Smalling became the third player when he finalized his loan switch to AS Roma last week.
