Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian has revealed that the club have decided not to sell him during the current transfer window.
Matteo Darmian has not been able to earn a consistent run of games since arriving at Manchester United from Torino back in the summer of 2015 and there has been widespread speculation that the Italian international could be leaving Old Trafford this summer.
Bayern Munich and Barcelona have been credited with an interest in Darmian and with manager Jose Mourinho currently possessing a plethora of options to choose from at the back, it looked like the 27-year-old would be made available for a transfer.
Despite all the speculation regarding his future though, Darmian started during United’s 2-1 UEFA Super Cup final defeat against Real Madrid at Philip II Arena in Skopje on Tuesday night and following the game, the defender has made a huge revelation regarding his future.
Darmian explained that United have take him off the market and added that although he has attracted interest from a number of Italian clubs, he is more than happy to stay put at Old Trafford this summer.
The Italian international told Mediaset Premium after the UEFA Super Cup Final, “In difficult moments, I always worked hard and tried to take every opportunity I had. Last season I did end up playing my games, it was a good end to the campaign and I am building on that.
“Nobody likes to lose, especially when there is an important trophy up for grabs. We wanted to start strong, but instead only really got into the game towards the end and unfortunately missed a potential equaliser.
“I’m pleased that Manchester United consider me to be off the market, just as I’m pleased by the interest of Italian clubs. In any case, there was never anything concrete, so there’s no point talking about the transfer market. I see myself at Manchester United, I’m happy here.”
