Defender has fallen down pecking order under Jose Mourinho and now has choice between Italy and Spain

Sevilla will go head-to-head with Roma for Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.

The full-back has struggled to hold down a regular place in the starting lineup and looks surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

The Serie A side signed Rick Karsdorp from Feyenoord in the summer, but have now lost him for the rest of the season to a cruciate ligament injury.

But SunSport have been told La Liga outfit Sevilla are prepared to match United’s £15million valuation.

Unlike Roma, the Spaniards are ready to take Darmian on a permanent move in January without the need for six month loan stint.

Darmian joined United from Torino in 2015 under former manager Louis van Gaal.

But the 27-year-old has been linked with moves back to Serie A during the last three transfer window following the arrival of Jose Mourinho.

Darmian has been used as an auxiliary left back at times while Antonio Valencia has become the first-choice right-back.

But even his appearances on the left side of United’s defence have now been limited by the resurgence of Ashley Young who has been offered a new deal to extend his stay at the club.
