Manchester United transfer news: Juventus plot move for international defender

Posted by

Despite the transfer window closing only four days ago, speculation regarding Manchester United’s star names have already begun circulating.

According to the Italian outlet Tuttosport, the Serie A champions Juventus have set their sights on United’s out-of-favour defender Matteo Darmian.

The report stats that Juve failed in their attempts to sign Darmian over the summer and will make a fresh attempt to sign the Italy international in January.

Darmian is yet to make a Premier League appearance under manager Man Utd’s newly appointed manager Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese tactician has so far opted to field Antonio Valencia at right-back, putting Darmian’s future in doubt.

The 26-year-old is being targeted by Juve as a replacement for the ageing Stephan Lichtsteiner. The experinced wing-back is in the final year of his contract with Juve and has lost his place in the starting line-up following the arrivals of Dani Alves and Juan Cuadrado.
