Matteo Darmian has agreed to sign for Manchester United after agreeing a four-your contract.
United have agreed a fee of £12.7million with Torino, which could rise to £14.4m on performances.
AC Milan, Darmian’s first club, are also due to receive around £287,000 as part of a five per cent sell-on clause.
The finer details are being discussed between lawyers on Wednesday and the parties hope to make the formal announcement within 24 hours.
The 25-year-old Italian international, who can play right back and centre back, will become United’s second signing of the summer following the capture of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven.
Depay will be unveiled at a press conference on Friday.
United are in need of a player who can play right back after manager Louis van Gaal decided the Brazilian Rafael is not up to the job.
Darmian is an Italian international with 13 caps and at almost 6ft tall would help Van Gaal with probems he identified last season in terms of the relatively small composition of his team.
Speaking last season, Van Gaal said: ‘In set plays, it is very difficult but that is because of the height of the team – maybe you can advise me to buy tall players.’
Van Gaal is hoping to offload Rafael before the start of the new season and will also listen to offers for central defender Jonny Evans who has not been offered a new contract.
