Matteo Darmian set for Manchester United medical on Friday

Torino F.C. defender Matteo Darmian will fly to England tomorrow for a medical ahead of a move to Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.

Man United agreed on a £12.9m fee for the Italian right-back and he is set to become the club’s second summer signing.

The 25-year-old is now set to fly into Manchester for a medical at the club’s Carrington training ground.

United are looking to wrap up the deal as quickly as possible because they want to include the Italian international in the tour to US on Monday.

Torino boss Giampiero Ventura has already confirmed that Darmian will fulfil a dream by joining Manchester United and ex-red Federico Macheda has wished him well at Old Trafford.

All that stands between him and a move to United is a successful medical which should now take place in the next 24 hours which is fantastic news.

Just like Ander Herrera last summer, the Darmian transfer has accelerated extremely quickly and developed from a simple rumour to an almost done deal within the space of a few days.

United needed a new right-back at the club and Louis van Gaal looks to have all but wrapped up a deal for one, so his focus will now go towards other glaring holes in the squad such as defensive midfield and at centre-back.
