Matteo Darmian joined Manchester United for £12.7m on a four-year long deal from Torino football club last year. According to DailyStar, the Italian international is planning to stick around at Old Trafford for a while as he wants to learn more and is loving the Premier League.

The Italy international started the club’s first 11 games of the season and has made 35 appearances in his decent debut campaign. Darmian looked pretty calm and composed as a full-back but as the season has progressed, Darmian has been struggling with a succession of fitness problems, which includes rib and shoulder injuries. The versatile defender has started the last two matches for his club against the city rivals Manchester City and the in-form Everton.

At the beginning of January, Juventus officials were travelling to England to finalize the £11m swoop of Darmian, after just six months since the Italian had moved to Old Trafford. By rejecting every suggestion of leaving his club next season, Darmian said he “loves” the challenge of the English Premier League reports the Italian publication Calcio Gazzetta. Darmian has adapted very quickly to the style of play of united and also to EPL, when he was asked about his current situation, Darmian stated:

“I love the Premier League and I want to stay here for a long time,” the 25-year-old said.

“There is a lot of difference because this is a big club and from Serie A there are a lot of differences.

“The Premier League is more physical and less tactical, this is the most important difference, but I think it is the best championship in the world, so I love it.

“They play very fast and strong, and I have to adapt to this kind of football, but I want to improve myself.

“My team-mates help me to feel comfortable, and the staff are the same, so for me it was easy [to adapt].”
