The Italy international has enjoyed a mixed spell so far at United, with Antonio Valencia, Marcos Rojo, Guillermo Varela, Ashley Young, Luke Shaw, Daley Blind and Tim Fosu-Mensah all being favoured at full-back at various stages during his two years with the club.

And while he did fight his way back into the side under Jose Mourinho towards the end of the 2016-17 campaign, even turning in an excellent performance in the Europa League final win over Ajax, Darmian could well be allowed to leave this summer as the Portuguese manager looks to bolster his squad for a serious Premier League title challenge.
