After a stagnant transfer window that barely saw any departures from the club, Manchester United have managed to offload three out-of-favour players in the last 24 hours – just a day before the summer window closes shut.

The exits began with Alexis Sanchez following Romelu Lukaku to Inter Milan on a season-long loan deal. United will still pay a part of the Chilean’s wages, but the switch spells good news for all parties involved.

The Inter duo will be joined by two more out-of-favour Manchester United defenders in the Serie A, in the form of Matteo Darmian and Chris Smalling.

Parma have supposedly coughed up a £1.4m fee to sign Darmian on a permanent transfer. The 29-year-old full-back will finally return to his homeland after spending multiple seasons on the Mancunian sidelines.

The English centre-back, on the other hand, has joined Roma on a €3m loan deal, after the central defensive roster at the Theatre of Dreams got a little too crowded for everyone’s liking.

The swift business from Manchester United, which will see their squad become smaller and the wage bill lighter, has been met with good reviews from the club’s fan-base.
