Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is reportedly free to leave in January, but unfortunately for the Italian, there are no offers on the table.
The former Torino full-back has made just eight appearances in all competitions so far this season, with injuries and a lack of options forcing Mourinho’s hand in recent months to play him.
As noted by The Sun, the 27-year-old has been given the all clear to move on in January, but ultimately there have been no concrete bids made despite plenty of speculation of interest from Italy.
Both Juventus and Inter are named in the report as two sides that were said to be interested in taking Darmian back to Italy, but neither have made a bid and so it has led to further confusion over what happens next.
It’s added that Mourinho is willing to allow the versatile ace to leave on an initial loan deal with an option to buy at the end of the season, but it remains to be seen whether or not an interested party comes forward and makes their move.
It will be a major disappointment for Darmian to see his time at Old Trafford come to an end, as he had been tipped by many to be a huge success in Manchester.
However, with his lack of playing time also harming his chances of staying in Giampiero Ventura’s Italy squad moving forward with the 2018 World Cup qualification games in mind, he’ll hope to secure a return to Serie A in January and get back to playing regular football.
