Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that one of his stars would like to leave Old Trafford in this window, but the club will only let him go if the right offer comes in.
Italy international Matteo Darmian, who joined the English club from Torino in 2015, is said to be the player who has told the Portuguese tactician he wants to move on after limited first-team opportunities in his past three seasons at the club.
Mourinho, who gave the Italian the captain's armband for their friendly against AC Milan, has explained why he made the right-back the skipper for the game, despite knowing that he wants to leave.
"Because he is a fantastic guy in my two years and with Mr. (Louis) Van Gaal before me," Mourinho said, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"He is the kind of guy who is always ready to give what he has, he grew up in AC Milan and to play against his childhood club and be captain in a friendly has a nice meaning.
"Matteo wants to leave, and I think when a player wants to leave, if the right offer arrives, you have to try to be human and let the player follow his instinct, but not at any price. And, until now, the offers we got for Matteo are not even close to being accepted."
The 28-year-old has made 85 appearances for the Red Devils since joining the club in 2015, scoring one goal and assisting a further 4 strikes.
