He moved to Old Trafford from Torino last summer and initially impressed. But the 26-year-old’s form dipped as the season went on and it’s claimed Jose Mourinho will look to offload him during the summer transfer window.

And according to The Daily Star, Barcelona sporting director Ariedo Braida is keen to sign Darmian in a £16million deal this summer.

Darmian is likely being targeted as a replacement for three-time Champions League winner Dani Alves, with the right-back on the verge of a move to Juventus.
