Manchester United are reportedly ready to demand a fee of €18m if Matteo Darmian is to leave the club this summer.

It’s been clear to see that Darmian isn’t really in Jose Mourinho’s plans at Old Trafford, and this is likely to prompt the former Torino man seeking pastures new in the near future.

Clubs are unlikely to fork out a price of €18m for a defender who, in reality, has not progressed since his move.
