Man Utd Close In On €53m Ace After Agreeing Terms Over €230,000-A-Week, 5-Year Deal

By on August 7, 2014

The summer transfer window is now well under way and managers are working hard to strengthen their squads ahead of next season, so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Manchester United have edged closer to the signing of Juventus ace Arturo Vidal.

Manchester United are edging ever-closer to the signing of Arturo Vidal after agreeing terms over a contract worth €230,000-a-week with the €53m-rated Juventus midfielder, according to reports in Italy.

Vidal has been strongly linked with a move to United in recent weeks and despite Juve’s public declaration that the 27-year-old is happy at the club and isn’t for sale, widespread reports suggest a deal is very-much in the pipeline with the midfielder understood to be pushing for the move.

Speculation from Chile last month even suggested that Vidal had undergone an initial medical checks, with United understood to have been keen to assess his troublesome knee injury before pushing ahead with any potential deal.

Now it looks like the deal has taken another huge step closer with Italian newspaper La Stampa claiming that following talks with Vidal’ agent Fernando Felicevich earlier this week, United have now agreed terms over a five-year contract worth €230,000-a-week – which works out at around £182,000.

The paper suggests that the ball is now in Vidal’s court and United are waiting on the Chilean international to tell Juventus he wants to leave before formal talks can take place between the two clubs over a potential fee.

It’s understood that Juve would value Vidal at around €53m (£42m), but United would hope to try and drive the price down once the player makes clear his desire to move to Old Trafford.

There is so much speculation surrounding this deal that it’s difficult to know what to believe, but there certainly seems to be concrete interest from United and a deal appears to be edging closer by the day.

It would be a major coup for the Red Devils if they are able to pull it off as Vidal is one of the best all-round midfielders in the world and would bring a huge amount of quality to Louis van Gaal’s new-look side.

We’re just going to have to see how things develop over the coming days but with the new season just around the corner, you’d expect Vidal’s future to be resolved one way or the other within the next week or so.

    I’m man utd fan I like this team always to be successful,so need more signings as midfielder and defender that will secure our position.Be careful don’t choose an outcast from the rivals team and use him like a key defender that he will help us, veemarlen has so many injuries that’s why arsenal don’t want him,please get someone at this position.
