Lazio are interested in the signing of out-of-favour Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian, according to reports.
The Italy international joined the Red Devils in 2015 for an estimated £13million from Torino, but he has since failed to set the Premier League alight in his four years at the club.
The defender has made 60 appearances for the Old Trafford outfit and registered one goal, only occasionally showing signs of the strong, composed full-back that the United faithful were expecting.
Calciomercato report that Lazio believe that bringing the 29-year-old back to the Serie A would revive the AC Milan youth product’s career and put him back in line for a recall to international football, having already played in the league for AC Milan, Palermo and Torino.
Le Aquile usually play with three at the back with attacking wingbacks, and with Darmian having been deployed as a left-back, right-back and centre-back in his time at United, it is uncertain where he would fall into their plans.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is expected to majorly revamp his lacklustre side this transfer window, so the prospect of offloading the fringe full-back for a reported £12million could tempt the Norwegian into letting him go.
