Napoli are reportedly ready to rival Juventus in the race to sign Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.

Napoli have reportedly decided to enter the race to sign Manchester United defender Matteo Darmian.

Over the weekend, it was suggested that Darmian was scheduled to undergo a medical at Juventus, but it appears that a switch to Turin is not a foregone conclusion.

United and Juventus are allegedly still negotiating a price for the full-back and according to Calciomercato, that has resulted in late interest from Napoli.

Carlo Ancelotti has just replaced Maurizio Sarri at the Naples-based club, and the Italian could look to get one over the team's biggest rivals for the Serie A title.

The report suggests that Juventus remain favourites to sign Darmian, but Napoli are ready to strike should the top-flight champions fail to complete a deal.

Darmian will leave Old Trafford with United having already completed the signing of Porto youngster Diogo Dalot on a long-term contract.
