    You'd want to be Ronaldo, right now? Is your acting pick Kevin Spacey?

    Maybe he meant the other Ronaldo.

    I definitely wouldn't want to be Darmian with those sideburns and all that.

    Worrying how we cannot get rid of him, and another reminder of how it isn't easy for a club like United to get rid of 'deadwood'. Letting Fellaini go was the clearest intent of us finally deciding that we'd prefer a thinner squad than a mediocre one, but looks like we're having trouble finding suitors for our garage sale.

    Darmian will probably be a professional and do his job when he steps out the next time, but we shouldn't be surprised if he isn't running through walls to help the team. I wonder how many other players in that squad have been told they're surplus to requirements, and end up on the pitch nonetheless.

    I hope we take the option on his contract and sell him to anyone but Juventus in the summer.

    So, is Darmian now playing for Juve or is the thread title wrong?

    Maybe he is the missing CB link?

    How can he be a worse FB than Young and Valencia ?

    He's not worse than present Valencia. He's better defensively than Young but offers even less going forward. Young's final ball is poor, but at least he stretches play and gives us the semblance of having width on the right which creates more space for our attacking players than they get with Valencia or Damian there.

    We pay him what, £300k, a month not to play, yet the club can't pay the non playing staff a living wage which would cost around £300k a year. Pathetic all round.

    It's a ruse from his agent to fish out a good contract at his next club. Would bet my house that article is bollocks.

    Given that Ed Woodward runs the football side of things, I wouldn't make that bet unless you would like to be homeless
