Speaking to 888Sport, former Manchester United defender Paul Parker believes that an exit for one of the club’s current players could be on the cards this summer. Matteo Darmian has been used primarily as a left back this season, having seen Antonio Valencia become Jose Mourinho’s first choice right back, and Parker is of the persuasion that this will likely spell the end of the Italian’s time at Old Trafford.
“Given the way he’s playing and his lack of opportunities then Darmian won’t be there at the start of next season. He has to move on because he’s seen a right winger take his spot at right-back and Blind get ahead of him at left-back.
“He’s an Italian international and if he wants to continue playing for his country then he has to move on. I think he will do and I’m sure that’s all in progress already. Everybody knows that if you’re a squad player under Mourinho then you simply don’t get any games, you are just a squad player.”
