Matteo Darmian, who joined Manchester United in the summer, has spoken about the size of his new club, comparing United to Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

United are the top, like Real Madrid and Barcelona. The strength of English clubs lies in their organisation. But I found an environment where professionalism goes hand in hand with human depth. The changing room placed me in the best conditions to find my feet. Van Gaal? He’s tough. He demands a lot in training. He’s extremely careful about details.
