It has been reported that Manchester United fullback Matteo Darmian is interesting Bayern Munich.
The German giants considered Darmian while he was with Torino ahead of his summer move to United.
The Italy international is now back on the radar for Bayern, with concerns emerging over their senior fullbacks.
Bayern chief Matthias Sammer concedes: “There are weaknesses we know of in several areas: The full-back position could become an issue for us.”
With Philipp Lahm now 31 and Rafinha 30, Sammer recognises they need a succession plan and Darmian is among the options being considered.
The defender’s current United deal runs to 2019.
