Darmian: A Loss Making Deal for United

Manchester United had accepted yet another loss-making deal as they have allowed the defender Matteo Darmian to return to Italy. Italy Seria A club Parma has signed a four year deal with the player.

It is reported that Parma has paid around 3.6 million pounds to Manchester United to buy Darmian who was up for sale for quite some time. Manchester United was trying to offload the full-back for over a year but they could not find any suitor at his asking price. Finally, they have accepted a far lower bid for Parma.
It can all be linked to joining of new Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who is trying to rebuild the club around his coaching style. He also has sold Romelu Lukaku for 73 million pounds to Inter Millan and sent Alexis Sanchez and Chris Smalling on loan. Alexis has gone to join Lukaku in Inter Milan and Smalling has gone to Roma, another Seria A side. It is believed that Marcos Rojo is also up for sale but United are not having any luck to get the player away at his asking wages.

Manchester United accepted a loss of 9.1 million pounds on account of Matteo Darmian. He joined the club in July 2015 from yet another Italian side Torino for a fee of 12.7 million pounds. He played under four full-time manager David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho and Solskjaer all of them having different coaching styles. He played 92 matches for United and was part of their FA Cup winning team in his first season. But since Mourinho, he was out of favor and had played only 13 matches since December 2017.

Parma is expected to make full use of the full-back and Darmian might expect for match time than he had in the United States.
