United reject a defender offer by Juventus in Italy

Manchester United

Juventus have had a cheeky £6m offer for right-back Matteo Darmian rejected out of hand by Manchester United chiefs.

The Italy intentional defender favours a move back to Turin this summer but the Red Devils are in no mood to let him leave Old Trafford on the cheap.

Darmian is out of contract next year but United want closer to the £14m they paid Torino back in 2015, which could yet see the player left in a state of limbo.

It’s understood Juventus are even prepared to wait until January if the money men in Manchester are not willing to compromise on their asking price.

Darmian has struggled to nail down a regular first-team starting slot in Manchester and has failed to convince boss Jose Mourinho that he is worth keeping around in the long term.

The 28-year-old earns around £85,000-per-week at the Theatre of Dreams and knows Juventus are comfortable matching those terms, making him even more desperate to try and push through a return to his homeland.

United sources have hinted a deal could perhaps be agreed if the Old Lady do come back to the table with anything over £10m.
