Serie A side Parma have completed the signing of Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian, the Premier League club have announced.
The 29-year-old had already been linked with a move to Italy this summer, while Barcelona were said to be ‘attentive’ to Darmian’s situation at United.
The Italy international had less than a year left on his contract after making seven appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils last campaign and none so far this term.
However, he has now sealed a move to Parma in a £1.4million deal, making a huge loss on the reported £12.7million United paid Torino in July 2015.
A statement on United‘s official website said: “Everyone at Manchester United would like to thank Matteo for his service and wish him all the best for the future.”
