It’s been a few weeks of pure progress at Old Trafford. Things couldn’t have gone much better since the departure of Jose Mourinho, with the Red Devils winning every game so far under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It’s clear that the manager still has a lot of work to do as he looks to move Man Utd into a new era, but so far, it’s been brilliant for the boss.
There’s a sense that Man Utd are slowly moving away from the chaos that has dominated everything at Old Trafford since the departure of Sir Alx Ferguson. Under the likes of David Moyes, Louis van Gaal, and even Jose Mourinho, it’s been relative chaos at the club, and only now has calmness been restored, with the club now speeding away from that period.
Yet, there are still some relics of the past at Old Trafford, though Man Utd are apparently closing in the removal of one of them. According to the Guardian, Man Utd are in advanced talks with Juventus regarding the sale of Matteo Damian, with the defender seemingly closing in on a return to Italy.
It’s fair to say that Darmian’s run at Man Utd has been a bit of a disappointment. He’s struggled to make a name for himself at Old Trafford, and he’s never really held down a regular starting berth at the club. He’s clearly got talent, but a lack of overall quality and consistency – combined with a bit of bad luck – has proven to be his downfall.
Man Utd are moving on, and with players like Diogo Dalot now in the side, a new era is dawning.
