More players are being linked day after day to Serie A giant Inter Milan by various reports.
Manchester United star Matteo Darmian is one of the latest figures to be linked to the Italian side. Darmian is linked to a loan deal to the San Siro with a view that the move is made permanent for 12 million Pounds. The Sun report that the right back will made the move after losing his spot to Antonio Valencia under current United boss Jose Mourinho.
The report says several SerieA clubs are open to acquiring Darmian. Juventus, Napoli and Roma are mentioned as likely destination for the player. Leggo says that it is inter that has shown real interest by bidding a 900,000 Pounds loan deal, with the option of 12.6 million Pounds in a permanent deal.
The deal, if true, is good business for United as it would see the club recoup investments for the underperforming player. However, reports still say that the Red Devils are pushing for 16.2 million Pounds for the Italian.
Since a lot of top clubs are linked, it wouldn’t be difficult for them to pick up the tag for the Italy international but the Nerazzurri vice president Javier Zanetti would be hoping his relationship with the Portuguese tactician in charge at Old Trafford would help him land Darmian. Zanetti was prominent when he played under Mourinho in 2009/10. The former manager-captain relationship was fruitful as they won the famous treble.
Darmain was decent for the Red Devils when he first arrived from Torino but a long term injury to Luke Shaw forced him to move to the role. His confidence has dropped with time, but Mourinho doesn’t seem to be looking at his direction. The move could happen in January as Mourinho might look at reinforcing again despite the huge summer spending.
