Serie A giants Inter Milan have reportedly struck an agreement with Man United to bring unwanted full-back Matteo Darmian to the San Siro for free.

The Italian defender who has joined the Red Devils back in 2014, has only played 14 Premier League games over the last two seasons at Old Trafford.

Italian full-back was not in the squad for the Red Devils 4-0 victory over Chelsea on Sunday and has not played single minute during the pre-season tour for the 20-times English champions.

According to Rai Sport, Inter Milan have given Darmian a way out of Old Trafford after reaching an agreement with the Red Devils to take the defender on a free transfer after his contract expires in the summer of the 2020 year.

The Serie A giants have already negotiated a deal to secure the services of Romelu Lukaku from the Red Devils in this window, with the forward joining for a club-record £73m.

Italian champions, Juventus have also been rumoured with signing Darmian, while Barcelona were also interested in the signing of 29-year-old full-back.

Meanwhile, Manchester United reportedly planning to make a £24m bid for Spain youth international winger Dani Olmo that was turned down by Dinamo Zagreb in the summer.

The 21-year-old forward has impressed during a triumphant Euro Under-21 Championship with his national team, claiming the ‘man of the match’ award in the final game against Germany.

Reports claimed that the Red Devils were among several teams interested in securing the services of the midfielder, with Arsenal and Bayern Munich also believed to have been keeping a tab on the player’s situation.

According to Sportske Novosti, the Red Devils put forward a bid worth £24m as the transfer deadline approached, however, were flatly turned down by the Croatian side.
