Manchester United make move for Matteo Darmian

In a piece of news that is definitely going to surprise quite a lot of people out there, the Red Devils have made a rather miserly bid for the Italian defender

Corriere della Sera newspaper reports that Manchester United have approached Italian Serie A outfit, Torino with a rather low transfer bid for their star defender, Matteo Darmian. The 25 year old full back, who can also operate on either flanks, has been attracting a lot of interest from a host of European sides and it appears that Manchester United are the ones who have made the first move, offering the Turin side just 8.5 million pounds for the talented player.

And although it has been reported that the club will be paid an extra three million pounds in bonuses, Torino are unlikely to settle for anything less than 20 million euros which they feel is a fair value for a player who has so much to offer to any team willing to sign him.
