According to reports in Sky Italia, Manchester United have turned down an approach from Inter Milan for defender Matteo Darmian.

The report claimed that the Italian giants want the defender on loan for the season with an option to buy next summer if things work out well. The Italian defender has fallen out of favour at United and is yet to play a match this season.

United boss Jose Mourinho has preferred to play winger Antonio Valencia in defence with Timothy Fosu-Mensah also in the line for the role. As a result, Darmian is believed to be open to a return to Serie A. However, the Red Devils are reluctant to let him leave on deadline day.

The San Siro outfit has been very active in this transfer window. They completed a sensational £65million double deal for Joao Mario and Gabriel Barbosa last week. But their manager Frank de Boer is not done yet and is keen to do some more transfer business.

The 26-year old signed for United for an undisclosed fee on July 11 last summer. The Italian full-back penned down a four-year contract with an option to extend it for a further year, and made 39 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring once. He began his career at Inter’s bitter rivals AC Milan – playing for them for three seasons – before plying his trade with Padova, Palermo, and Torino.

But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
