Manchester United have completed the signing of Matteo Darmian from Torino for an undisclosed fee.

The 25-year-old full-back has signed a four-year contract with the Red Devils with an option for a further one year.

Darmian said: “It is a dream come true to be joining Manchester United. I have loved the time that I have spent at Torino and I would like to thank the club and the fans for everything they have done for me. I am sure they can understand when the opportunity to join the biggest club in world came along it was something I had to do.

“To work with Louis van Gaal, a manager that has achieved so much in football is such an exciting prospect.”

Darmian made his Serie A debut as an AC Milan player at age 17 in 2006 and has since featured for Padova and Palermo.

He scored five goals in 47 appearances in all competitions for Torino last season and made a total of 146 appearances for the Italian club.

The defender has 13 international caps for Italy and was part of their World Cup squad last summer in Brazil.

“Matteo will be a great addition to the team. I am delighted to welcome Matteo to the club and look forward to working with him in the coming days,” manager Louis van Gaal said.
