Italian defender Matteo Darmian will have a medical at Manchester United ahead of a proposed transfer from Torino, manager Louis van Gaal said on Friday.
"I`ve read (the rumours) in the papers but that is true," Van Gaal told a news conference when asked if Darmian was on his way to the Premier League club for a medical.
The 25-year-old, who started all Italy`s matches at last year`s World Cup in Brazil, can play across the defence and United have reportedly agreed a 12.9 million pound ($20.00 million) transfer fee with Torino.
Darmian would become United`s second signing of the close season after Netherlands international Memphis Depay joined from PSV Eindhoven for a fee reported to be around 30 million euros ($33.50 million).
"I`m very excited, we`ll face this new adventure," Darmian told Sky Sports Italia on Friday.
"It`s a dream, I`m superstitious so I won`t say anything until the signatures (are signed), let`s wait."
