The future of the Italy international seems unclear at the moment after new United boss Jose Mourinho favoured Antonio Valencia for the right-back slot.

Darmian, 26, signed a four-year contract when he arrived at Old Trafford from Torino for a fee in the region of £12.5million last summer.

He made 24 Premier League starts and scored one goal during his first campaign in English football but lost his first-choice international status at Euro 2016 to AC Milan’s Mattia De Sciglio.

Roma are on the lookout for a right-back and have been linked with Torino’s Brazilian defender Bruno Peres in the Italian press.

Napoli don’t appear to need a new player for that position, however, with highly-rated Albania international Elseid Hysaj virtually an ever-present for them in Serie A last season.
