Barcelona are on the lookout for a wing back have targeted Manchester United’s Matteo Darmian as a top target, according to reports.

Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo claim the Nou Camp club need a wide man, Darmian leads the list, and is joined by AC Milan’s Mattia De Sciglio, Borussia Monchengladbach’s Fabian Johnson and Bayer Leverkusen’s Wendell.

The former Torino full-back was on international duty with Italy at Euro 2016, but missed the decisive spot-kick on Saturday night that saw Italy knocked out of the European Championship in the quarter-finals by Germany.

He has been very unlucky with a series of injuries keeping him from reaching his full potential in his first Premier League campaign but it looks like he has impressed Mourinho.

Darmian got off to an incredible start to his career at Old Trafford, but inconsistency wavered into his play as he wasn’t able to keep up with the demands in England.

He won United’s Player of the Month award for August and has shown he has incredible potential and I believe Jose Mourinho‘s defensive structure will allow him to work to the best of his abilities.

As Italy have been knocked out of the European Championship, he should be looking to put his head down in training and hit the ground working under the Portuguese boss at Old Trafford.
