In an effort to bolster the club's options at right back, Bayern Munich had been looking at Torino's Matteo Darmian as someone that could come right into the squad and start in big matches. This morning, reports from Sky Italia and Di Marzio said that Darmian had chosen Manchester United as his destination for €18 million.
Then, Torino manager Giampiero Ventura took to Sky Italia to confirm the reports.

So, what does this mean for Bayern? Well, with Mitchell Weiser off to Hertha Berlin, the club must now either push hard to find another right back to sign or (shock!) consider deploying Philipp Lahm at the position. That is, of course, if Pep Guardiola and company feel that Rafinha isn't up to snuff.
