Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are somewhat annoyed after hearing the news from talkSPORT that one of their key transfer targets from Torino, Matteo Darmian, is on the top of Fiorentina’s wishlist.
The 25-year-old defender has gone to impress in Serie A having played for Italy at the World Cup in Brazil, which is where he caught the eye of Louis van Gaal.
There was a lot of speculation surrounding him in January with Tottenham and Napoli pursuing him, but nothing materialised and United will hope that they come in and snap him up in the summer.
He would have grabbed van Gaal’s attention whilst the current United boss was in charge of Holland in Brazil, but Fiorentina have him at the top of their list having watched him in Serie A this year.
The club see him as their prized asset and a reflection of how high they rate him is the asking price which is in the region of £15 million.
United fans over by the dartboard in the Transfer Tavern believe that Darmian would be a useful addition the squad, however argue the price tag attached to him is inflated.
