The manager of the Serie A side, Giampiero Ventura, confirmed on Thursday that Darmian would seal his “dream” move soon, and the defender himself has now all but confirmed the move.
“I’m very excited, we’ll face this new adventure,” the 25-year-old told Italian website gianlucadimarzio.com.
“It’s a dream, I’m superstitious so I won’t say anything until the signatures, let’s wait.
“I say thank you to Torino and their fans who have been great these years.”
Darmian will now undergo a medical in Manchester, with an announcement over the deal expected in the coming days.
