The Italian full-back played under Antonio Conte during Euro 2016 as the Azzurri were dumped out of the competition on penalties against Germany.
He does not appear to be flavour of the month at Old Trafford though.
Darmian introduced himself at Manchester United very impressively last season but after the winter he tailed off dramatically and has not been able to recapture his early form for the Red Devils.
As a result, Mourinho has put his faith in Antonio Valencia with Fosu Mensah acting as back up.
Darmian is the sort of player Conte could be attracted by. He already knows what the manager is looking for and he probably wouldn’t be exceptionally expensive.
