Transfer talk: Juventus close to signing Manchester United defender
Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian could be Juventus' first defensive signing of the summer according to Corriere dello Sport.
Darmian joined Manchester United in the summer of 2015 from Serie A side Torino for a fee in the region of 13 million euros. He has failed to nail down a regular spot for himself though and has fallen out of favor at Old Trafford. This season, the right-back has appeared only eight times in the league, out of which five has been starts.
Corriere dello sport believe that Darmian will be Juve's first defensive signing of the summer, with Leonardo Spinazzola and Mattia Caldara set to return from their loan spells at Atalanta this summer.
Juve will pay United a fee in the region of 13 million euros for the 28 year old player who is willing to go back to Italy in a bid to reinvigorate his career.
