Matteo Darmian’s contract at Manchester United will expire in 2020 and in the past few transfer windows, he’s been linked with a return to Italy.

Earlier this year, Inter Milan were after the fullback, but no deal took shape and they ended up signing Cedric Soares from Southampton on loan.

FcInterNews now claims the Nerazzurri will not make the Saints owned player’s transfer permanent, and will see what the chance of signing Darmian is.

The defender has expressed his desire to return to Serie A. His agent shares good relations with Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta as the latter wanted Darmian for his previous club, Juventus.

With limited playing at Old Trafford, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are likely to allow the Italy international to leave the club, and they value him around €10-12m.

Inter, on the other hand, are willing to pay €5-6m for Darmian who earns €3m net, which is half Manchester United’s valuation. The San Siro club’s owners, Suning feel the price quoted by the Premier League side is ‘too much’ for a player who will turn 30 later this year.

For this reason, Darmian’s chances of joining Inter look bleak for now.
