The former Premier League champions are planning a raid of the La Liga side to land Joao Cancelo, as per report.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that United are prepared to offer Matteo Darmian to Italian Champions Juventus toward the end of the 2017/18 League season.

A similar report expresses that Man United are taking a gander at a possible transfer deal for Valencia’s exceptionally brilliant full-back Cancelo ahead of the foreseen departure of Matteo Darmian toward the end of the campaign.

As per a similar article, the Red Devils will face rivalry from Inter Milan for the Portuguese international.

Joao Cancelo is at the moment at Inter Milan on loan and the San Siro outfit have a £30million option to sign the 23-year-old.

The former Benfica wing-back has scored only once and has created two assists in 21 games in the Serie A this season to earn good reviews following his loan switch to Italy.

Manchester United are in second place on the Premier League table and a point ahead of Mersyside club Liverpool ahead of their trip to AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday.
