Matteo Darmian has become the latest player to leave Manchester United this summer, after signing a four-year contract with Parma in a deal worth €4 million.

The Italy full-back is the third first-team player to leave following the closure of the Premier League transfer window on Aug. 8, after loan moves for Alexis Sanchez to Inter Milan and Chris Smalling to Roma.

It has been a busy summer of outgoings for the Old Trafford side with Ander Herrera and Antonio Valencia having  left on free transfers, signing for Paris Saint-Germain and L.D.U. Quito respectively, while Romelu Lukaku joined Inter. 

Darmian, 29, joined United from Torino in 2015 and made 28 appearances in his first season, with Louis van Gaal as manager.

However, after playing 18 Premier League matches in the following campaign, he failed to hit double figures again at United, featuring just six times last season.

He was a second half substitute in United's 2016 FA Cup triumph over Crystal Palace and was one of the standout performers in the win over Ajax in the following campaign's Europa League final.
