Video: Manchester United target Matteo Darmian in action

by Robbie Dunne

Torino right-back Matteo Darmian is said to be close to signing for Manchester United and fans have understandably been getting excited.

The Italian has played 13 times for his country and, aged just 25, he appears to have his best years ahead of him.

Darmian is an old school defender with the ability to get forward if necessary. The discipline that he shows in his game will suit Louis van Gaal and will offer United solidity at the back that was not present at times last season.

He also offers an intensity on the right hand side of the field that will keep opposing defenders on their toes as well as providing an outlet out wide.

While he loves to tackle and has excellent concentration, he can also finish, as you can see from the video.

The interesting thing about Darmian is that he started out as a centre-half and is comfortable playing on either the right of left flank.

He played 19 times in the right back position for Torino last year and 15 times on the left which shows a level of versatility that could come in handy for United if injuries happen to hit the squad.
