De Laurentiis is claiming that last season's Serie A runners-up have made the first move, telling Radio Kiss Kiss: "We have asked for Darmian on a loan with a right to sign next summer".

The 28-year-old is widely expected to leave Old Trafford this summer following a dismal spell in England.

"I want to play more regularly".

With manager Jose Mourinho revealing the full-back wants a move away from United, Darmian has himself confirmed that he is seeking pastures new.

After finishing a distant second to derby rivals Manchester City in the previous campaign, fans are hopeful that the Red Devils will go one better, but after an underwhelming transfer window it remains to be seen if they can end their league title drought.

Partenopei boss, Carlo Ancelotti is a big admirer of the player though Napoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis has stated that Darmian is not the only one on the radar to add more depth to the Napoli backline.

The Old Trafford outfit play German champions Bayern Munich in their final pre-season friendly on August 5 before hosting Leicester in the opening league match on August 10. But we will see what happens because we don't know. It is a hard decision to leave. The former Premier League champions also have no interest in selling their star defender unless Maguire explicitly tells them he wants to leave the King Power Stadium.

"I'm waiting to see what happens".

"But not at any price and until now the offers we got for Matteo are not even close to being accepted".

"If Matteo leaves he leaves because the right offer arrives and if he stays, yes you are right, he can be important for us".

Martial revealed the news on Instagram with an image of the boy's feet with the caption: "Thank you Lord for giving me a second attractive child in good health".

"Italy? It could be an option, yes, probably".
