Dreams do come to pass and Matteo Darmian’s dream did just that when he was approached by United.
The Italian full-back said it was a no-brainer when he was approached by United. His switch from Torino to United was announced on Saturday after he signed a four-year-contract.
“For me it’s a great opportunity. I want to go there and I don’t think twice,” he told MUTV.
“All young people dream of playing at Old Trafford and it’s my dream and it’s come true.
“I’m so excited and I am very happy to be here at one of the most important clubs in the world.”
The defender’s arrival comes as United look to complete the formalities on a deal to sign Bastian Schweinsteiger from Bayern Munich, with Memphis Depay already secured, and he says that the calibre of their summer signings makes it a particularly exciting time to join the Red Devils.
“It’s a great opportunity,” he said. “The team is a competitive team and we all want to play together and do well together.
“It’s a club with a great history and a lot of victories. I think the team will carry on in that direction of winning trophies.”
