Manchester United are on the verge of sealing a sensational €40m deal for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal that would also see Patrice Evra head in the opposite direction, according to reports in Spain.

Speculation in recent weeks has heavily linked Vidal with a move to United with new boss Louis van Gaal understood to have made the Chilean international a key target as he looks to continue his rebuilding project at Old Trafford.

The 27-year-old did little to play down the idea of a move after admitting he would love to play for United – who he called ‘one of the biggest clubs in the world’. When quizzed about reports linking him with the Red Devils, Vidal told reporters:

“I’ve heard about the rumours, but I haven’t spoken more about this subject,” he said.

“I’m very calm, but anyone would love to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

“I’m enjoying my holidays, and when I return to Italy I’ll see what happens.” source: Daily Star

It appears the potential move has now taken a huge step closer to completion with Spanish newspaper Marca reporting that Vidal is now ‘packing his bags for United’ after the midfielders agent, Fernando Felicevich, held successful talks with officials from the former champions.

Felicevich is also the agent for Alexis Sanchez and he has been in England recently to secure a deal for the attacker to join Arsenal, and the newspaper suggests he took the opportunity to tie up the loose ends for Vidal’s move to United with van Gaal sanctioning the €40m (£32m) purchase with defender Patrice Evra heading in the opposite direction.

Many have been skeptical as to why Juventus would even contemplate selling a key player such as Vidal, but the news from Marca comes just days after the Mirror reported that the Italian champions had to sell either the Chilean or Paul Pogba in order to balance the books this summer, so it appears a move to Old Trafford could really be on the cards.

It if comes off, it will be a stunning coup from van Gaal and continue whats already been a promising start to his summer transfer business following the purchases of Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw.

There’s little doubt that van Gaal had to add several players to his squad this summer after last season’s disappointing campaign and United fans would be ecstatic if he could manage to lure a player of Vidal’s immense quality to the club, but we’ll have to wait and see just how much truth there is behind Marca’s claims.

    man united need creative midfielder not defending midfielder, I prefer sneidjer than Vidal why van gaal not quit Vidal and go for sneidger bcos all this fake rumour about Vidal is like we are wasting time on bid for player, this opportunity for united to build up the squad…… van gaal do something in time before summer are close. up united….. united for life……we are need positive change at united.

    Aturo vidal is a very good player and seeing him move to united,it will be a massive boost to the club but I am vehemently believe that he is not the solution to our problem especially the one we encountered the previous season.we need a sober minded defensive midfielder and centra defenders to replace ferdinand and vidic.!!!!!!!!
    UNITED 4 LIFE!!!!!!!77
