Matteo Darmian finally set for Man United exit/€1.5 million Parma switch on verge of completion

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian is on the verge of departing the club, with a return to Serie A reportedly imminent.

United stint

Italian international Darmian has been on the books of United since the summer of 2015, when he made the move to Old Trafford from Torino.

After initially taking to the rigours of the English game like a duck to water, though, the now 29-year-old’s game-time subsequently fell off a cliff over the seasons that followed.

As such, amid an evident dip in confidence, Darmian’s performances, when afforded the opportunity, began to suffer, leading to the former Milan man notching just 10 Premier League starts over the last two seasons combined.

As such, United’s persistence in standing firm in the face of offers for Darmian over the last couple of summers has always come as somewhat baffling.

Parma bound

The latest updates stemming from Italy this afternoon, though, suggest that the stopper is finally set for an Old Trafford exit.

As per the reliable Fabrizio Romano, Darmian is expected to secure a return to his home country imminently, with Parma.

Though a loan was initially touted, a €1.5 million Euro permanent switch to the Stadio Tardini is now widely-predicted:
