Manchester United full-back Matteo Darmian has admitted he misses Italy as reports continue to link him with a return to his homeland.
The former Torino star has featured in just three Premier League matches for Jose Mourinho’s side this season.

The 29-year-old has been strongly linked with a January move back to Italy, with Juventus, Inter Milan, Napoli and Roma all said to be interested in signing the Italy international.
Darmian told Gazzetta dello Sport: “I must say, I really do miss Serie A and Italy now. “I know that I am at one of the best clubs in the world and I am proud to be at Manchester United, but I do miss Italy. I love my country.”
United would have sold Darmian last summer if their valuation had been met and the emergence of summer signing Diogo Dalot will probably hasten the defender’s departure. “Returning to play for Italy is my objective.
Roberto Mancini (Italy head coach) hasn’t called me up yet, but I hope he will in future,” Darmian added.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
