Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti will personally fly to England in a bid to convince Jose Mourinho to allow Matteo Darmian to leave Manchester United on loan.
The vice-president gets on very well with former manager , now Red Devils Coach Jose Mourinho, and the hope is that the Special One’s own Milanese past may persuade him to keep Darmian away from Juventus.
Calciomercato.com claim Inter Milan want to sign the Italy defender on an initial six-month loan, with the view to a permanent €15m (£13.5m) transfer.
Darmian, who moved to United from Torino in 2015 for £12.7m, has fallen behind Antonio Valencia in the packing order at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old has made just one appearance under Jose Mourinho – September’s Europa League defeat at Feyenoord – and is concerned a lack of game-time could jeopardise his international career.
