Matteo Darmian Free To Leave Manchester United – Jose Mourinho

share on:

Jose Mourinho has confirmed Matteo Darmian can leave Manchester United if a suitable bid comes in for him this summer.

Full-back Darmian has been linked with a return to Italy with either Inter Milan, Juventus or Napoli.

“Matteo wants to leave and I think when a player wants to leave, if the right offer arrives you have to try to be human and let the player follow his instinct but not at any price,” he said after watching his side beat Milan on penalties on Wednesday night.

“And, until now, the offers we got for Matteo are not even close to being accepted.”

Jose Mourinho, however, conceded he is lacking expert options outside of Matteo Darmian to deputise for Valencia, with auxiliary defenders Ashley Young and Victor Lindelof still on holiday following their World Cup exploits.

“Valencia is injured, you are right,” Mourinho added. “And he will be injured for the beginning of the Premier League, Diogo Dalot is also in a recovering phase, he will not be ready for beginning of Premier League.

“Ashley Young is a possibility to play right-back, but is on holiday. I don’t know if he fancies to be back for that and put himself to be available for the team or stay on holiday.

“Victor Lindelof is a possibility, he is not a right-back but is a possibility, he starts training next Monday. I will send people to Manchester to train with Victor, it makes no sense for him to come to the United States.
