Why Darmian Could Have Decided Man Utd’s Next Manager

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola reportedly wanted to bring current Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian to the club during the summer, as per Bild.

The 26-year-old Italian full-back joined English giants Manchester United in the summer from Serie A side Torino, although it has been revealed he had more than one offer on the table, including one from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

With the Spanish manager confirming he is to leave the club at the end of the current season, reports have begun to emerge as to the real reasons behind his departure.

And according to Bild, the Spaniard had an argument with the Bayern Munich board regarding transfers, with Guardiola looking to bring in either Darmian or current Real Madrid right-back Danilo, who at the time played for Portuguese giants FC Porto.

Despite the ambition to sign the two right-backs, the Bayern board opted for Seria A winner and Chilean midfield maestro Arturo Vidal, to Guardiola’s displeasure.

The move to bring in Vidal meant that the club captain Philipp Lahm has been moved back to the right side of defence, a move which has left Guardiola furious, as he proclaimed his love for the German’s stability in the center of midfield.

Guardiola is being linked with various clubs across Europe, including both the Manchester clubs, after announcing his departure from Bayern, with the club’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge confirming former Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti will replace him.
