We always get a little worried when we read about players pledging their future to a club as it is often a way of trying to get them in with the supporters, while also letting other teams know that you are in fact open to a move should the correct situation present itself.
At the moment Manchester United players are all assuming that former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho will be taking over in the summer from Louis van Gaal and with the Portuguese manager already having a reputation for benching player who do not fit in with his way of thinking we can reasonably say that other than probably David De Gea nobody is guaranteed a place in the 53-year-olds starting XI, and if you do not believe us just as Kevin De Bruyne or any number of players the Special one fell out with during his time at Real Madrid.
The latest Red Devil star to come out and pledge his loyalty to Old Trafford is Italian right-back Matteo Darmian following talk of him being linked with a move to Bayern Munich.
In an effort to put the record straight the former Torino defender told the Manchester Evening News: ‘I love the Premier League, and I want to stay here for a long time.’
‘There is a lot of difference because this is a big club, and from Serie A there are a lot of differences.
‘The Premier League is more physical and less tactical, this is the most important difference, but I think it is the best championship in the world, so I love it.’
Ok so he loves the Premier League, but we did not hear a mention of how he loves Manchester United, so we will wait and see if the 26-year-old is still at Old Trafford following what we expect to be a very busy transfer window for the Northwest giants.
