Manchester United fans react as Matteo Darmian set for permanent exit

Premiership Picks

Having arrived from Torino in the summer of 2015 for a reported £12.7m, it’s fair to say Matteo Darmian hasn’t exactly enjoyed the finest of Manchester United careers.

The Italy international has struggled to establish himself in the Red Devils’ first-team, and has been on the fringes of the squad for the past couple of seasons.

Reports in recent weeks had suggested the versatile full-back had agreed a deal to join Inter on a free transfer next summer, but it appears the 29-year-old could be set for a much quicker Old Trafford exit.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, Darmian will instead be moving to fellow Italian side Parma on a permanent transfer before the end of the transfer window this summer.

After hearing the update on the defender’s future, United fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the situation.

Many Red Devils supporters hailed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for getting rid of even more deadwood, and felt the Norwegian is showing he is a “man of his word”.

Some fans also praised Darmian for the way in which he has handled his reported departure, and thanked him for being the model professional and never complaining.
