Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has reportedly given the green light for a move to Juventus in the summer. 

The 28-year-old full back has fallen out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho after making just two starting Premier League appearances this term as Antonio Valencia continues to impress, leaving him to push through a move away from Old Trafford to secure regular senior football for next season.

According to Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, via Football Italia, Darmian has informed Juventus that he is more than happy to make the move to the Serie A side in the summer, where he could be set to replace the ageing Stephan Lichtsteiner.


It is expected that Juventus director Beppe Marotta will look to finalise details with Manchester United over a fee for the versatile defender who was secured by United from Torino for €18m in the summer of 2015.

The 28-year-old's ability to play as a right back, left back and central defender is said to have appealed to the Italian giants who are willing to overlook his lack of football this season which totals a measly 13 appearances across all competitions. 

Darmian remains contracted with United until the summer of 2019 and is thought to command a smaller transfer fee than fellow Juventus target and Arsenal right back Hector Bellerin.

The Gunners' full back had reportedly been tagged with a £50m price tag which is said to have made the Serie A side reconsider pursuing a deal for the Spaniard, leaving them to turn to the Italy international.
