Agreeing a four-year contract with Manchester United yesterday evening, Torino’s Italian international right back Matteo Darmian is all set to become the Red Devils’ second purchase of the summer.
Following Memphis Depay to Old Trafford, this time Louis van Gaal has moved to address an area of his squad which definitely needed strengthening with Rafael now being deemed surplus to requirements after losing his way and Antonio Valencia a right winger by trade.
Speedy and an assured tackler, Darmian seems a sensible purchase for Manchester United with the transfer fee rumoured to be just under the £13 million mark – small change compared to the £27 million splashed out for Luke Shaw last summer!
While Darmian has earned 13 caps for the senior Italian national side to date, he still isn’t a household name here in the tavern so today our landlord is asking Red Devils fans what they know about their latest signing.
Our landlord has spotted a few of our Red Devils regulars ‘doing a Firmino’ by acting as if they’ve trailed Darmian’s career ever since he was a nipper but there’s no fooling our man in charge here in the tavern!
However, after a little research, here’s what our United supporters have come up with. Did you know these five things about the Red Devils’ latest recruit?
