Jose Mourinho plans to sell Man United star this summer – report

Jose Mourinho is preparing to sell Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian this summer, say reports

Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United officials to prepare to sell Matteo Darmian this summer, according to reports in Italy.

The Portuguese coach is preparing for life at United’s new manager after being appointed by the Red Devils on a three-year contract last month.

Attentions have inevitably quickly turned towards the summer transfer window and Mourinho’s plans to revamp his squad ahead of his first season in charge at Old Trafford.

Now, Italian outlet Tuttosport is reporting that Mourinho is ready to sell defender Darmian as he prepares for a summer clear-out at Old Trafford.

Darmian only joined United last summer and made 39 appearances across all competitions under Louis van Gaal in his first season in the Premier League.

The same report goes on to say that Darmian is a potential transfer target for Serie A champions Juventus this summer.
