Juventus CEO Beppe Marrotta has dismissed the ongoing speculation linking Matteo Darmian with a summer move to the Serie A club. The Italy international has fallen out-of-favour under Jose Mourinho this term, and he was handed just his third appearance of 2018 during the midweek win over Bournemouth.
As a result of his reduced gametime, talks have escalated about him leaving Old Trafford this summer and Darmian personally suggested he would consider a return to the Serie A with the Bianconeri.
However, Marrotta, when asked about the same, was quick to dismiss the prospect of signing Darmian, he said: “Matteo Darmian? No, nothing has been done there.”
Darmian’s future has been under question over the past few months and the writing is pretty much on the wall with the full-back said to favour a return to his homeland.
Juventus have regularly been linked with the 28-year-old due to his former roots with Turin rivals Torino, but there is also understood to be interest from AS Roma, who failed with a loan approach in January.
Darmian is currently a regular figure in the Italian national side and it would be a logical decision for him to pursue a new challenge with the prospect of receiving gametime in every matchday.
