Manchester United have rejected Inter Milan’s approach for Matteo Darmian, saying that the defender is not for sale, according to Italian broadcaster Sky Italia.

The 26-year-old, who joined the Red Devils from Torino last summer, has fallen down the pecking order at Old Trafford, despite a good start to his time in England.

Darmian is yet to feature in a competitive game under Jose Mourinho this season, and has been linked with a move away from the club this summer.

As a result, Juventus, Roma and Napoli were keeping tabs on the situation, with fellow Serie A outfit Inter Milan being the latest club to express an interest in the Italian.

The Nerazzurri were keen to snap up Darmian on a loan deal, but Manchester United have made their intentions clear about not parting ways with the full-back.


Darmian, who is contracted with Manchester United until 2019, made 39 appearances in all competitions for the club last season.

He also has 26 caps and a goal for Italy to his name.
