Matteo Darmian has reportedly agreed terms on a four-year contract to join Manchester United.
The Red Devils have apparently had an offer which could rise to £14.4m based on performance-related incentives accepted by Torino for the Italian international defender.
According to Sky Sports, the 25-year-old will complete his move to Old Trafford once a settlement has been reached with AC Milan – Darmian’s former club who are entitled to around five per cent of the fee.
Right-back was a problem position for United last season. Louis van Gaal was not convinced by Rafael and preferred to use winger Antonio Valencia in defence for much of the season.
Darmian, who started all of Italy’s matches at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, is capable of playing across the back four and has been one of Serie A’s most reliable performers in recent seasons.
United are hopeful that he will arrive in time to be involved in their pre-season tour of the United States, along with their first summer signing Memphis Depay.
