Juventus are in talks to sign defender Matteo Darmian from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Football Italia is reporting that the Serie A club are closing in on a deal to bring the 28-year-old Italy international to Turin ahead of the new season.

According to the same story, agent Tullio Tinti met with Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici in Milan this week to discuss a potential deal.

The article carries quotes from Darmian’s agent claiming that talks are at “an advanced stage” for the defneder to move to Juventus this summer.

The same article claims that Inter Milan have also been expressing an interest in signing Darmian this summer, after the defender struggled to hold down a regular spot in the first team under Jose Mourinho last term.

The story claims that Manchester United’s asking price for Darmian is around €20m and so far Juve were only prepared to offer €13m, but they seem to have upped their bid in recent days.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the title next season.
