Man United ready to offload defender as part of deal to sign Serie A star – report

Matteo Darmian could be on his way to Juventus as part of a deal to bring Paul Pogba to Manchester United

Manchester United are prepared to sell Matteo Darmian to Juventus as part of a blockbuster deal to bring Paul Pogba to Old Trafford this summer, according to reports.

The Red Devils have been linked with a host of players since Jose Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager last month.

United wrapped up their first signing of the summer on Wednesday when they announced a deal to sign defender Eric Bailly from Villarreal on a four-year contract.

The Red Devils have also moved quickly to tie veteran defender Michael Carrick down to a new one-year contract at Old Trafford.

However, United continue to be linked with a host of new players and Pogba is believed to be one of Mourinho’s top transfer targets this summer.

Now, The Sun is reporting that United are prepared to make Darmian a makeweight in a deal to bring the France midfielder back to Old Trafford.
