Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal confirms Matteo Darmian deal is in the works

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed the club are actively pursuing a deal for Torino right-back Matteo Darmian.

The Italian is currently on his way to Manchester having reportedly signed a contract to join Man United earlier today.

After arriving in England, Darmian should complete the formalities of the transfer before United officially announce his signing.

Van Gaal appeared to have confidence that Darmian will soon be a United player by confirming that a deal is in the works:

Capable of playing on the left and right hand side of defence, Darmian is exactly the kind of versatile player that van Gaal likes.

He will be a solid addition and one that will go a long way to fixing the problems United had at the back last term. However, his arrival will only serve to intensify rumours surrounding Rafael, who looks increasingly likely to leave the club sooner rather than later.
