    Yes - same basis for discarding him like he's some sort of amateur footballer. He's not the modern fullback the game requires these days. But he's still a very capable defender.

    Probably because the club want some fee fee clubs deem he ain't worth it. Besides, I was talking about before we weirdly extended him. My bad

    On the right or left side of a back 3, he can do a fine job as he has good defensive instincts. I doubt he is as capable in a pair.

    Fair enough mate, triggering his extension was a real head scratcher.

    He played about 4 games at CB for United and about 80+ at fullback.

    How is that the same basis?

    I think 80 games is a good enough sample size to determine that he's not very good as both Mourinho and now Solskjaer have concluded.

    I wonder how much the club actually want for him.

    Surely we could could ship him off to Italy for like a million quid or something.

    Inter wanted to loan Darmian for 6 months in January and we asked for €6m. They asked Southampton about Soares for the same loan and the price was €1m.

    I expect United were shocked when Inter chose not to pay 6x the market rate to borrow an average full back.

    Why would we ask for a loan fee that is double of what Darmian is paid yearly by the club? That makes no sense. More likely that we asked for 6m in transfer fee. Apples and oranges.

    The reports from Italy said we wanted 6m loan and then another 6m on top for a transfer.

    Why would we demand such a fee? Because we have bad negotiators who overvalue our own players. Same reason for why we seem unable to sell anyone.

    Bizarre we haven't sold him yet.

    He's not that bad that we can't find anyone to buy him.

    He has a contract and might possibly play a few games before his contract expires.

    He'll be 30 in December, has been unimpressive for a long time now as Ashley Young's back up. Big teams have no reason to go near him and small ones have no reason to make him one of their highest earners (unless he's ready to take a significant pay cut). He'll just have to wait until the end of his contract which I doubt he'll mind too much anyway.

    Yeah i get that impression myself, surely if he wants to leave and has wanted to leave for 1-2 years he could have did more to push it through by taking a wage cut etc. instead of sitting in the stands most weeks.

    Hopefully him, Rojo and Bailly won’t be with us come Sept 1st. Not that I’m holding my breath mind you.

    Very much doubt anyone is touching Bailly with his current injury.

    He is, but he was never going to go anywhere else in England. The window for Europe is still open.

    Wouldn't be surprised, mate.
    Just leave the poor lad leave, take whatever is hoffered. I feel sorry for him, he's a decent enough RB and I have no idea what we are doing.

    He played 14 PL matches combined in last two season yet we expect I don't know what fee for him.

    Oh and for the bold part- no one does, not even those running the club.

    I wonder what he's actually like in the dressing room. Looks like it's going to be 5 years at the club :eek:

    I have seen Darmian play for Italy and he is very good. Then he comes and plays for United he is not that good. He joins their attack too. So something is wrong if this happens.

    Shame that it didn't work out for him but he's been a class act throughout his tenure.
