Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wants to keep Italian defender Matteo Darmian at the club this summer, a report claims.

Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian will reportedly have to hand in a transfer request if he wishes to leave Old Trafford in this summer's transfer window.

The 27-year-old joined United from Torino in the summer of 2015, and made 39 appearances during his first season at the club.

The Italian international only started 15 Premier League games under Jose Mourinho last term, although he did finish the campaign in the team, and the full-back gained a host of praise for his end-of-season form.

Roma, Inter Milan and Juventus have all been credited with an interest in the Italian, but according to ESPN, Mourinho is keen to keep Darmian at Old Trafford, and will only sell if the full-back expresses a desire to depart.

Darmian has two years remaining on his contract at United.
