Man Utd drop Darmian and Blind

Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind are closer to Serie A transfers after Manchester United dropped them from the squad.

The two full-backs were left out of tomorrow’s Premier League meeting with Leicester City.

They were particularly disappointing in the League Cup 2-1 defeat to Bristol City and this snub is seen as punishment from Jose Mourinho.

This move has undoubtedly fuelled speculation of their January transfers, with Serie A sides very interested in the situation.

Darmian is wanted by Roma, Inter and Napoli, admired for his versatility in different tactical set-ups on the right or left.

As for Dutch international left-back Blind, he is known to be a target for Inter.
