EPL: Manchester United sack player
Following the arrival of Aaron Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace, Manchester United have sacked Matteo Darmian, according to James Robson of Evening Standard.
Wan-Bissaka was bought to take over the right-back position at Old Trafford.
Robson in an article on Monday, said the 29-year-old right-back, Darmian, has been ‘told he can leave’ United, while the club will also ‘listen to offers’ for Marcos Rojo.
He wrote, “I’m not shocked that the Reds would let Darmian go after a few average seasons, but with Wan-Bissaka now set to be the starting right-back, it does make sense.
“Personally, though, and I don’t think I’m in the minority here, but I’d much prefer to see Ashley Young leave – although his versatility may well be the reason why he keeps his place within United’s setup.
“Darmian started well but faded off pretty quickly, ironically, the start of his downfall came against Arsenal when he received an absolute mauling from Alexis Sanchez.
“You’d imagine clubs back in his homeland of Italy could well be interested, while I’m not really sure who’d be willing to take Rojo off our hands…”
