​Man Utd confirm Torino's Darmian to undergo medical

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has confirmed defender Matteo Darmian is scheduled to have a medical ahead of a reported £12.7m move from Torino.

"I have read that in the papers. It is true," said the Dutchman.

Asked whether he was on his way to Manchester for a medical, Van Gaal added: "Yes."

The Dutchman was less definitive on the future of Robin van Persie, who is in talks with Turkish club Fenerbahce.

Asked whether he was looking for another striker because the Holland international was leaving Van Gaal added: "When you say that it is not all true.

"When we feel we can say he is gone you shall hear it from Manchester United. We don't have the feeling yet."
