Manchester United close in on Italian defender

.According to reports in Italian newspapers today, Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Italy international, Matteo Darmian by the end of this week

The 25 year old full back is widely considered as one of the most versatile defenders in Italy and if rumours are anything to go by with these days, Manchester United may already have gotten their hands on a player who can operate as a full back on either flank.

Reports claim that the Italian has agreed personal terms with the club already and the only thing that remains is agreement upon a fee between the two clubs. The Red Devils are looking to pay 15 million euros for Darmian but the player’s club wants at least 20 million euros for a player who they feel would be a great return to investment for any side that is going to be playing Champions League football next season.
