Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian admits “I miss Italy” and calls Juventus “a great club” which signals a 'come and get me signal' for the Turin based outfit.

The Italian was signed by Louis van Gaal in 2015 in a £12million deal from Torino but was his spot as the club’s first choice right-back was instantly under threat from Antonio Valencia.

The Italian international has struggled for playing time under Jose Mourinho, making just five Premier League appearances so far this season.

That has led to speculation that he’ll leave the Red Devils in the summer, with the Bianconeri thought to be in pole position for his signature.

"It’s character building, we players live to play but it’s not always possible.

"In football there are a lot of variables like injuries or the Coach’s choices. I’ve always respected them and my Coach in any case.

"I’m a part of one of the biggest clubs in the world and I’m proud of that, it allows me to win important trophies.

"There’s nostalgia for Italy and I do miss it, let’s finish the season and then we’ll evaluate things.

"Juventus? This interest is pleasing, Juve are a great club and to be of interest to a club like that is important. We’ll definitely make the right evaluations at the end of the season." Darmian told Sky Italia

Jose Mourinho’s arrival in 2016 was expected to signal the end of Darmian’s time at Old Trafford but the Italian held on and even starred in the Europa League final in Stockholm. However, Darmian has been frozen out this term and, although he says he doesn’t regret joining United, he is interested now in joining Juventus.
