Matteo Darmian having Manchester United medical

The Italian international is currently in Manchester having a medical at the club’s facility as he looks to make a dream move to Old Trafford

This piece of information was also confirmed by Red Devils manager, Louis van Gaal who confirmed his club’s interest in the right back before reporting that the reports linking the 25 year old with a move to Old Trafford are true.

The deal is reported to cost the club around 18 million euros and this was also confirmed by Darmian’s soon to be former club Torino. A versatile defender, Darmian can operate as a full back on either flank and can also fill in as a centre back if the need arises which means that the Italian will prove to be an asset to the English giants if he settles down at the club quickly.

The move, when it is confirmed, also puts a question mark on the future of Brazil international Rafael who has struggled with fitness in recent times and may be sold this summer.
