Manchester United are prepared to let Matteo Darmian leave the club on a permanent transfer in January.
According to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the right-back is keen on returning to Italy, and is garnering heavy interest from Inter Milan.
Inter have been determined to splash their newfound cash, after being taken over by Chinese investors in the summer, in an attempt to regain their status as one of Europe’s heavyweights.
United are ready to cut ties with Darmian, but would look to profit from the £12 million they paid for him in the summer of 2015.
The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford under Jose Mourinho, and has made only one appearance so far this term, playing the full ninety minutes in United’s 1-0 defeat to Feyenoord in the Europa League.
The Italian made a brilliant start to life as a Manchester United player, but his form slowly dipped, and he has since lost his place in the side to Antonio Valencia.
Mourinho opted to go for Timothy Fosu-Mensah in the club’s second fixture of their Europa League campaign against Zorya Luhansk, and the youngster put in a confident and assured display, helping his team to a 1-0 win over their Ukrainian opponents.
Darmian has fallen down the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams, and would see a move to Inter Milan as a chance to resurrect his career and find his form again.
