Benfica prepare bid to sign out-of-favour Man United man – report
Benfica want to sign Matteo Darmian from Man United this summer, according to reports
Benfica want to sign Matteo Darmian from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.
The Sun is reporting that the Portuguese side are keen on a move to sign the Italian defender this summer after he fell out of favour at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho last season.
The 28-year-old Italy international only started a total of five games in the Premier League for the Red Devils last season as they ended up in second place and without a trophy.
His lack of playing time has inevitably prompted speculation linking Darmian with a move away from Manchester United in search of regular first-team football.
Now, it is being claimed that Benfica is a realistic destination for the defender this summer.
However, the same report quotes unnamed sources in Portugal as saying that the defenders wage demands could prove a problem for Benfica.
Meanwhile, Mourinho is currently preparing for his second season in charge of the Red Devils as he bids to try and steer them to a trophy next term.
The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their famous final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson back in 2013.
