Manchester United weigh up move for Torino’s Darmian: Report

According to Italian news source, DiMarzio, Manchester United have made an initial bid of  €15 Million to sign the Italian right back. Despite initial interest from Barcelona, United look poised to make an astute signing of the Italian international as they seek permanence at the Right-Back slot. Having contended with a whole host of names at right back, like Jones, Smalling, Rafael, McNair and Valencia. Manchester United are now seeking to add proven quality at right back, in the form of Darmian. Arguably one of the best right-backs in both the Serie-A and Italy, Darmian has plied his trade at Torino for the past four seasons. In those five years, Darmian has become a more complete and lethal full back, with the versatility to play anywhere across and back line, a quality that will fit in with van Gaal’s demands quite nicely.
