Manchester United have reached an agreement with the Italian side Torino for defender Matteo Darmian, as per SkySports report.
Darmian is originally a right-back but can be used in other defensive positions. The 6ft tall has also played as a center-back last term in Serie A.
Man Untied boss Louis van Gaal suffered defensive problems last season and with the addition of him he would be seeing a better future.
United had to play with Antonio Valencia as a right-back as Rafael remained out for several months. While injuries to Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Marcos Rojo and Jonny Evans also cost Untied enough. However, they still managed to finish at fourth spot.
Meanwhile, Rafael who featured only 11 times last term is set to be sold this summer with Serie A duo Napoli and Fiorentina are keeping tabs on him. Also, the Turkish side Galatasaray have shown interest.
On the other hand, Barcelona right-back Dani Alves was also in link before his new deal with the Spanish side. Everton’s Seamus Coleman was on LVG’s radar but he picked Darmian as the new right-back.
