Matteo Darmian: I miss Serie A and Italy national team

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Matteo Darmian has admitted he misses the Serie A and his country along with playing for the national team.

In what seems to be good timing with the January transfer window just around the corner, the Italian appears to be selling himself already.

The full-back had previously expressed his desire to leave in the summer but no club was willing to spend the amount United were requesting.

He has since remained professional and hasn’t thrown a fit about being unable to leave though he still wishes to leave.

Fans understand Darmian’s frustrations as he’s hardly featured under Jose Mourinho and so are fine with him departing whenever possible.

According to The Express, Matteo said to Gazetta dello Sport: “I must say, I really do miss Serie A and Italy now.

“I know that I am at one of the best clubs in the world and I am proud to be at Manchester United.

“But I do miss Italy. I love my country.

“Returning to play for Italy is my objective. [Italy head coach] Roberto Mancini hasn’t called me up yet, but I hope he will in future.”

It also happens supporters when young star Diogo Dalot has featured in recent fixtures and has shown plenty of promise.

He’s hardly the complete footballer but if he can continue to develop there’s no reason why he can’t be Manchester United’s first choice right-back for the next decade.

Dalot will need time to adjust but there are others who can help with the transition such as Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia instead of Darmian.

AC Milan, Inter Milan and even Juventus were all said to be chasing the former Torino man so hopefully they can complete the deal sooner rather than later.
