Versatile $19.5m Signing Stood Out for Manchester United

Manchester UnitedManchester United’s impressive pre-season tour ended with a defeat at the hands of French giants Paris Saint-Germain in the final of International Champions Cup.

The Ligue 1 champions earned a 2-0 victory thanks to an own goal from Luke Shaw and a close range finish from star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The Red Devils put in a mundane performance on the night and hardly created any clear cut opportunity upfront.

Louis van Gaal was somehow satisfied with the team’s performance and claimed that he is happy with the team spirit but they still have to improve.

Looking at the positives, versatile $19.5m summer signing Matteo Darmian stood out for Manchester United vs Paris Saint-Germain and the Dutch manager was pleased with his performance.

“I am very pleased with him. And you can see he can play on the right and left.”

Darmian used to play in various defensive positions for Serie A side Torino and the Italian defender has shown that he is comfortable playing on either side of the field.
