Manchester United outcast Matteo Darmian appears to have issued a come-and-get-me plea to Juventus by heaping praise on the Italian giants.
The 28-year-old full back has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford and is set to be one of four casualties this summer along with Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial and Daley Blind.
Darmian, who joined United for £12.7million from Torino in July 2015, has made just two starts in the Premier League this season – playing 196 minutes in the competition.

Tuttosport said on Saturday that Darmian has 'said yes' to a move to Italian giants Juventus
And the Italy international is resigned to ending his three-year stay at United when the current campaign is concluded.
Darmian, speaking to Sky, said: 'It's character building, we players live to play but it's not always possible.
'In football there are a lot of variables like injuries or the Coach's choices. I've always respected them and my Coach in any case.
'I'm a part of one of the biggest clubs in the world and I'm proud of that, it allows me to win important trophies.
'There's nostalgia for Italy and I do miss it, let's finish the season and then we'll evaluate things.
'Juventus? This interest is pleasing, Juve are a great club and to be of interest to a club like that is important.
'We'll definitely make the right evaluations at the end of the season.'
Darmian could be brought in from the cold on Wednesday when United face Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
