Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian has been linked with a move to Juventus in recent days, but it appears Jose Mourinho is unwilling to let the Italian go.
Juventus are said to be interested in bringing Darmian to the club as a replacement for want-away wing-back Dani Alves who is expected to sign for Man City in the coming days. Darmian, 27, arrived at Old Trafford 2 seasons ago but struggled to find a place for himself in Jose Mourinho's plans this year until late in the campaign when he won back his place in the first team. The confluence of events which led to Darmian's revival was injuries and fixture congestion, but the Italian grasped his opportunity when it came. He was one of United's best players in the Europa League final. Now, his manager sees value in him and does not want to relinquish his grasp on the player. The news is a setback for the Old Lady, who believed Darmian could be a seamless replacement for Brazilian in their defensive system after months of tracking. Wed, Jun 21, 2017 01:00:00 PM
