Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s move to Manchester United from Crystal Palace has strengthened the fullback position at Old Trafford.
The England U21 international’s arrival could push Matteo Darmian, who has one year left on his contract with the Red Devils, out of the club in the summer transfer window. In reality, the fullback was likely for sale regardless of the recent purchase.
Tutto Mercato Web claims Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic may play a role in helping the versatile defender return to Italy.
Maurizio Sarri does not need the Croatian at the Turin club, which is why the Old Lady are looking to offload the 33-year-old.
It’s stated Manchester United have courted him in the past and TMW suggest the 20-time English champions could be Mandzukic’s ‘eventual destination’.
This deal ‘could open the way’ for Darmian to join the Serie A winners, who has been tracked by Juve for several years.
The report makes it clear there has been no negotiation so far, but it’s an ‘idea that could soon take shape’.
TMW seem to have gone off on a tangent here, yet stranger things have happened in football.
