Juventus were largely reported to be interested in out-of-favour Manchester United defender MatteoDarmian. The Italian right back was set to return to the Serie A after struggling under Coach Jose Mourinho. However, current reports in Italy claim the champions are already looking at Juan Bernat of Bayern Munich.
Bernat has a year left on his deal and would come significantly cheaper than Darmian so Juve are considering the move. Darmian is eager to get his career back on track and he has agreed personal terms with Juve but the Serie A side do not want to spend that much on his transfer fee, which could be in the range of £20-25 million.
Manchester United’s summer signing Nemanja Matic claims that it is too early for the new players to be crowned as the best signing of the summer.
The former Chelsea midfielder made the switch to Old Trafford in order to be reunited with Jose Mourinho. He has been signed for around £ 40 million. At 29 years of age, he is at the peak of his career and his presence has already helped United make substantial improvements to the style of play. His presence has allowed Paul Pogba to be liberated in the team, and the Frenchman has already been having a major influence in the attacks.
However, Matic has also been joined by other summer signings producing good performances with the Romelu Lukaku especially on great form in the first few weeks of the season. The Belgian international has been able to score in two out of his three league matches for United. Lukaku was expected to struggle with the weight of a £ 75 million pricetag, but he has brushed off those suggestions by making significant inroads.Matic, though, says that the season is only three games old and it is too early to decide on the best summer signing.

The deal for Inter Milan’s Ivan Perisicwas believed to have broken down due to the slow speed of the transaction.
However, there are reports that United are still hoping to wrap up the deal as soon as possible.
The Red Devils are desperate for Perisic to join and feed RomeluLukaku the ball after the Belgian’s deal was completed. Jose Mourinho is keen on the Inter star joining that he has offered to give out MatteoDarmian as an extra.
The Italy international played in right back role before becoming the regular in the left back role. He was rattled earlier in the season but he managed to find some form towards the end of the term in the left back capacity. Continue reading
The future of the 27 year old Italian defender MatteoDarmian has recently been put into question as he has recently been seeing less time on the pitch at least in comparison to his debut season with Manchester United which was back on July of 2015.
During MatteoDarmian’s debut season at Old Trafford, he managed to make 26 Premier League appearances and in their current campaign of 2016-17. The amount of appearances has been dropped to 17 with only 3 more league matches remaining.
MatteoDarmian himself is starting to feel the pressure of not being a regular starter in Manchester United as the Italian player said that there are a lot of great players trying to secure their position in the main team.
“I don’t think it is the right time to speak about my future. Now is the time to think about playing against Arsenal on Sunday and nothing more’’
“At the end of the season, we will see what happens. It is normal that when you play for Manchester United there is a lot of competition for places from great players. When the manager gives me an opportunity, I try to do my best and that is it. I want to help the team achieve our objectives and then let’s see.” Manchester United’s MatteoDarmian said.

Boca Juniors came calling for Sergio Romero but the goalkeeper said no, deciding to remain at Old Trafford.
The Argentina No 1 spoke with the head coach of the South American club Guillermo Barros yet he was not convinced that the best move was to return home.
Romero has been with AZ Alkmaar, Sampdoria, and Monaco before he moved to Manchester United. He had the chance to leave during the winter window but opted to remain at Manchester despite barely getting any action under Coach Jose Mourinho.
Since signing in 2015, Romero has played in four Premier League and five Europa League games. He is the second choice who is barely called into action. He became the next in line behind De Gea after he replaced Anders Lindegaard but he would continue in that capacity until the summer.
Manchester United staff are watching 20-year old Joel Pereira. The young shot-stopper is currently on loan at Belenenses but if the Swiss born Portuguese develops fast, it could spell bad news for Romero. Continue reading
Manchester united defender Matteo Darmian has expressed his wish to remain with the red devils.
Darmian had been one of the many players to have benefited from the club’s poor form in the recent months.
Manchester united had had a very poor outing in the month of October and the following November. Even worse was for Darmian, as the club kept up a poor appearance at several outings, the team’s coach seemed to have absolutely no interest in using the Italian player in matches in his first few weeks at the club as manager.
As José Mourinho took over control of the club as coach, he seemed to have totally sidelined Darmian for the first few weeks as the Italian made no appearance at matches. While this might have been unfortunate for the Italian, he was not alone as his fellow teammates like Morgan Schneiderlin and Bastian Schweinsteiger seemed as though they had been scheduled for an exit from the club.
However, with January fast approaching along with any chance for the Italian to make his exit from old Trafford, the news and circling rumors about Darmian leaving the club are gradually dying down. There have been media speculation about a possible transfer of the 27 year old in the recent months, but all rumors are gradually been dispelled. Continue reading
Matteo Darmian says the transfer in the winters is not in his thoughts right now.
Mourinho, after coming into power at United, had initially benched Darmian in the Premiership games and was trying him only in other competitions like Europa League despite that he warranted a place in the starting line up in the Premiership too on the basis of his previous season performance.
Darmian was said to be frustrated with his undeserving omission and a transfer in the middle of the season was almost certain, but, the injuries to the first choice defenders got him back playing in the Premiership recently. Now, the Italian seems okay at Old Trafford and his relationship with the coach seems to have turned sweeter too. Continue reading
During the 2015-16 season of the Premier League, MatteoDarmian made 28 appearances as the Italian defender was a consistent starter for Manchester United but now with the arrival of Jose Mourinho things are starting to take a turn for the worse as he is beginning to spend more time on the sidelines.
MatteoDarmian has not performed in any of the 3 opening league matches of Manchester United. Bournemouth, Southampton and Hull City are all of the initial adversaries of United but Darmian was not given any playing time at all in any of these matches
Even though Darmian has been on the sidelines in these early stages of the season, the Italian player is eager to earn his spot in the first team of Jose Mourinhoas he said:
“I think it’s good to have such competition within the squad because there are a lot of good players for every position in a big team. You just have to be ready for when the manager gives you a chance. I think he’s a great manager, he’s very hungry and his victories and successes speak volumes for him. We want to improve this week to be ready for the first game of the season.”MatteoDarmian of Manchester United said. Continue reading
Matteo Darmian is one of the players that Manchester United is looking forward to harness for the FA cup final that is coming up this weekend.
This game is being much talked about and for several reasons. This match might not have been much of a tackle for Man United if they had not performed dismally in the last couple of months. With the team having been in trouble and lost out several matches since December, most fans are disheartened and are hoping that the team will be able to win the FA cup this weekend.

Manchester United player, Matteo Darmain, might not be fit in time for the FA cup final against Crystal Palace later this month, according to latest reports.
The Red Devils
are struggling with the doubts that the player and even striker, Anthony Martial might miss the crucial final due to fitness issues.
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal faces an anxious wait to see if both players can be fit in time for the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace on May 21. Martial was withdrawn during the warm-up before Saturday’s 1-0 win against Norwich City while Darmian left Carrow Road in a brace after being kicked on the ankle by Ivo Pinto. Both players will be assessed on Sunday to find out the extent of the damage.
On the injury worries, Van Gaal said:
“Martial felt something and I am a manager who doesn’t want to takes risks so I told him he couldn’t play and he had to sit on the bench with us.
“He had a tight muscle and we have to wait and see for the reaction. We have to see if it is still tight.
“The injury of Darmian is a kick on the ankle. He is now walking in a brace but the next day it can be OK. A kick is a kick.” Continue reading
