Man United 29-year-old star rejected four-year contract offer

Matteo Darmian is set to reject the offer of a four-year deal and has his heart set on a return to his homeland.

The Italian has made only two appearances since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was appointed in December, and one of those was as an emergency centre-half in the FA Cup third round victory over Reading back in January.

Matteo Darmian was signed by Louis van Gaal in the summer of 2014 for £12 million but could not cement a regular first-team spot under a succession of coaches and has regularly been linked with moves to Inter and Juventus.

Despite having barely featured in 2019, Gazzetta dello Sport reports the 29-year-old has been offered a lucrative new long-term deal to stay at Old Trafford.

The former Torino man, however, has made it clear he has no will of staying beyond the end of the campaign and is eyeing a move to Inter, who are unlikely to retain the signature of Cedric Soares, who arrived on loan from Southampton back in January, and could comfortably afford the relatively modest fee Manchester United would seek for the Italy international.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is likely to oversee a major rebuilding job at Old Trafford in the summer and is willing to bolster at full-back with Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka among his primary targets.

The Nerazzurri will be open to securing Matteo Darmian’s signature as they lack quality in the defensive department and the addition of Matteo Darmian would be surely a boost for the club.
