“I play for one of the biggest clubs in the world so I’m happy. I listen and read about the transfer but I don’t know anything. At the moment, nothing is true. I will continue to do my job and want to stay here,” said Darmian.
“The manager has to take a decision. Sometimes I’m out of the squad – definitely at the beginning – but I work hard to take my chance when the manager gave it to me.”
Recently, Darmian has started consecutive games for United, but at left back position.
Speaking of playing as a LB, Darmian stated: “I’m a natural right-back but playing on the left is not a big problem. I’ve been at left-back the last few matches and I feel comfortable in that position.”
In his second season at the club, Darmian is looking to make an impact in front of the new manager, and find a consistent place in the team. He has been part of the same back four in the last four games for Manchester United.
