Manchester United defender 'happy' to be linked with Juventus

Manchester United defender happy to be linked with Juventus

Darmian open to Juventus switch

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has reportedly opened up the possibility of joining Juventus at the end of the current campaign.

The Italy international left Turin for Old Trafford more than two years ago, but he has not quite flourished with the Mancunian giants.

Darmian appeared to have established himself at left-back during the backend of last season, but he has since dropped below Ashley Young and Luke Shaw in the pecking order.

In an interview with Sky Italia, Darmian acknowledged that he is happy to be linked with the Bianconeri, though he would still fancy a United stay.

He said: "I'm living a great experience here in England. I'd say yes to United again. Now the priority is to end the season in the best way possible. Juventus? I have not decided yet. I am happy Juventus are interested in me. Juve are a great club and I am happy for that."

Darmian has just over a year left on his present contract, and a return to the Serie A appears on the horizon with his agent previously confirming interest from AS Roma.

The Champions League semi-finalist were keen on pursuing his signature during the winter transfer window, but United made it clear that the Italian would not be sold midway through the season.
