Juventus line up transfer for Man Utd defender Matteo Darmian to replace City-bound Joao Cancelo

JUVENTUS are back on the trail of Manchester United's Italian defender Matteo Darmian.

The Serie A champions fear they could lose Joao Cancelo this summer with Manchester City among the clubs interested.

That means they are eyeing up replacements and Darmian is once again on their radar.

The 29-year-old former Torino defender is not part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's long term plans at Old Trafford.

Valencia have also shown an interest while there are believed to be other clubs in his homeland who would be keen.

Darmian was a £12.7million signing by ex-boss Louis van Gaal back in the summer of 2015 but has started only 76 times for United in that time.

Valencia were also linked with him last week as he enters the last year of his United contract.

And Inter Milan have also been keen on a player who made just six Premier League appearances in 2018-19.

Juventus are now in pole position, though – despite also showing reported interest in Tottenham's Kieran Tripper.

Prem champs City want £45million-rated Cancelo to push Kyle Walker for the right-back spot.

Meanwhile, the Sunday Times suggest the Old Lady have assessed Tripper, 28, who is tipped for a £30m exit as Spurs plot a defensive revamp.
