Torino manager Giampiero Ventura has confirmed that Matteo Darmian will join Manchester United.
The Italian international right-back has been in talks over a move to United and has reportedly now agreed personal terms on a £12million move.
And Ventura says Torino couldn’t stand in the way of Darmian’s wish to play in the Champions League.
He told Sky Sports Italia: “Matteo Darmian will play for Manchester United. It’s a dream for him.
“It’s true, Darmian will play in the Champions League with Manchester United.
“Matteo deserves a top team and always dreamed of playing in the Champions League, so now that dream will be realised.
“In these four years we’ve gone from Serie B and a great depression to the top flight and the enthusiasm of the Europa League.
“We worked with Darmian for many years and it’s only right he should be given the chance to make his Champions League dream come true.
“A sale can happen, the important thing is that we’re able to plan an even stronger squad in future. We’re on the right track and as always the objective is to earn a place in Europe.”
