TURIN – We. Matteo Darmian is to greet Turin, board the flight to London and then take the train to Manchester. United are waiting for him with open arms ready to make him sign the contract and to throw open the doors of the Premier League. The pressure of the English club player is starting to bear fruit even if the agreement between the two companies is not yet defined, but the gap between supply and demand narrows more and more. The ballet of figures is continuous and swirling. Rumors about have chased all day yesterday. The last and quite authoritative told that Manchester would come to propose to the president Urbano Cairo 16 million euro more than 2 million bonus for the card outside of the National. The Turin would respond with a request for 16 million to 18 million plus 2 bonus. Besides the initial price was set by more than 20 million, cash and without technical counterparts and from there the leaders grenade never moved. Now, however, the distance between the parties is minimal, so that in the evening someone gave as imminent the successful conclusion of negotiations started a few weeks ago. And, there is much optimism in the entourage of British society.
The ENGAGEMENT – also because, in the meantime, the English club had reached an agreement in principle with the player’s agent with regard to the recruitment and benefits attached. According to British sources the fees agreed with Darmian would consist of about two million pounds to rise (just over € 2.8m) per season plus bonuses linked to the results obtained and the contract provides for a term of four years. The agent of the outside will still have to deal with the last details, for example the use of a car and the ability to manage and control at least part of the image rights of the player. But it is clear that the substance is already there. It is no accident yesterday morning Darmian returned to Turin, where from now on will wait for a phone to call. Yeah, why not just Manchester United and Torino have achieved and defined the final agreement, the player will fly to England to sign the new contract.
From that lovely translation we can ascertain that the deal is fairly close and the final details of the contract are being agreed – with the essential details already agreed, it seems just a matter of time before the Italian World Cup defender is announced as a Manchester United player.
