Torino manager, Gaimpiero Ventura has confirmed reports that the Italy international is set to leave Turin to sign for Louis van Gaal’s side
Since yesterday, Manchester United had been hotly linked with a move for the talented full back and reports claimed that the Red Devils had agreed on a transfer fee of 18 million euros for the 25 year old as LVG looks to replace Brazil international once and for all.
And this news has also been confirmed by the Italian club’s manager.
“It’s true, Darmian will play in the Champions League with Manchester United,” the coach told Sky Sport Italia.
“Matteo deserves a top team and always dreamed of playing in the Champions League so now that dream will be realised.
“In these four years since Darmian joined Torino from AC Milan, we’ve gone from Serie B and a great depression to the top flight and the enthusiasm of the Europa League,” Ventura continued.
“We worked with Darmian for many years and it’s only right he should be given the chance to make his Champions League dream come true.”
