United Look To Sell Defender For £10.4m After Four Year Contract Is Rejected

Manchester United will look to sell right-back Matteo Darmian this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The Red Devils extended his current deal for a further year to prevent him from leaving for nothing at the end of the season, but it seems they wanted him to stay for longer.

Darmian has apparently rejected a four-year contract extension, despite his fitness problems and his lack of appearances this campaign.

The 29-year-old reportedly turned down the offer as he wants to move back to Italy for family reasons, with Inter Milan said to be favourites for his signature.

United are believed to be demanding at least €12m (£10.4m) for Darmian. The fullback arrived from Torino in July 2015 for £12.7m but never established himself as a regular first team player.

The Italian has featured just six times in all competitions this campaign, with injuries limiting his game time. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer did, however, confirm he could make the bench for this evening’s game against West Ham.
