​Darmian named in Man Utd's Champions League squad

Matteo Darmian has been included in Manchester United's 25 man squad for the UEFA Champions League.

Speculation had suggested that Darmian may leave the club before the end of the transfer window. However, no move materialised, despite links to teams such as Napoli and Inter Milan.

Now he is part of the squad for United as they look to battle in a difficult group against Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys from Switzerland.
