Manchester United’s Darmian Still Under Roma’s Radar

The Italian defender could return to Italy after a disappointing experience in the U.K. Roma are chasing the player. 

His career had a rapid surge and a gradual decline. When Manchester United had purchased him from Torino on July 11, 2018, football pundits talked about a serious loss of Italian football. At that moment, Matteo Dramian was a still young player and a possible rising star.

But life can change unexpectedly. What seems to be the most important step in your career can be an unforgivable mistake. In the last two seasons, Jose Mourinho has not given too much glory to the Italian defender. In the 2017-18 campaign, Darmian made only 17 appearances. Nowadays, his impact at Manchester United is even less tangible.

In the current campaign, the Italian right-back made just 1 appearance against Leicester City on August 10, 2018. That was the first match of the season for the Red Devils. Then, the Italian defender has disappeared.

According to, Roma are interested in Matteo Darmian. His contract is set to expire in June, but Mourinho would be willing to let him go in January. His price-tag should be very low due to his imminent free-agent status and the Roma sporting director Monchi is monitoring the situation.

Although the Lupi now have Davide Santon and Alessandro Florenzi on the right flank, Matteo Dramian could help Di Francesco on the left defensive side of the field as well. This could be an opportunity for the Spaniard. The Italian defender could be brought to Italy at discount and, if his services were not satisfactory, redirected elsewhere by making a profit.

Reportedly, Inter are interested in Darmian as well.
