Respected Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio has added fuel to the fire that Matteo Darmian in en route to Manchester United by snapping a picture of the Torino defender at the airport as he prepares for his medical at the club.
The 25-year-old is expected to complete his move to Old Trafford at some point over the weekend as he was due at United’s Carrington training complex on Friday to undergo a medical.
With Rafael da Silva being told that he is free to leave the club this summer, Louis van Gaal will be painfully aware that his back line needs some serious work to make sure they build on last season’s improved fourth place finish.
Darmian comes with a big reputation, but he will be stepping into a position that has been held by two legends of the modern game in the shape of Patrice Evra and Denis Irwin.
