Zanetti: I’ll try to convince Darmian

Juventus eye Italy international

Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti will personally fly to England in a bid to convince Jose Mourinho to allow Matteo Darmian to leave Manchester United on loan. claim Inter want to sign the Italy defender on an initial six-month loan, with the view to a permanent €15m (£13.5m) transfer.

Darmian, who moved to United from Torino in 2015 for £12.7m, has fallen behind Antonio Valencia in the pecking order at Old Trafford.

The 24-year-old has made just one appearance under Jose Mourinho – September’s Europa League defeat at Feyenoord – and is concerned a lack of game-time could jeopardise his international career.
