MANCHESTER UNITED outcast Matteo Darmian is closing in on a move to Juventus, according to reports.
Italian outlet Tuttosport claim the full-back has already made up his mind and has his heart set on a return to his homeland.
Mourinho recently came out saying that Darmian, 28, is still part of his plans as he plans the assault on next year’s Premier League and Champions League.
However, reports claim Darmian is ready to walk away from Old Trafford after three seasons with the side.
He joined from Torino after being snapped up by Louis van Gaal but has appeared just four times this calendar year.
His contract is up next year but it is reportedly ’90 per cent’ certain that Darmian will join the Serie A side – after being linked to them for months.
The Special One spoke of Darmian and Daley Blind this week after the pair starred in the 2-0 win over Bournemouth.
He said: “They are part of my plans. No [I’m not going to let them go].
“I think when a player wants to go, if that’s the case and the right offers arrive in the club, we study that, because we always try to have the players happy.
“So if happiness means for them to leave, let’s see what happens, but they are in my plans.
“I don’t want to sell [them]. I want to keep [them].”
Second-placed United travel to Bournemouth tonight looking to extend the gap over Liverpool to eight points.
