Manchester United open talks over midfielder

A number of outlets are reporting that Manchester United have opened talks with Juventus over the signing of midfielder Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean, who comes with a nifty €50m price tag, shone at this year’s World Cup and it seems as if he could well be Manchester United-bound.

The Italians are said to want Patrice Evra as part of any deal and claims are being made that new boss Louis van Gaal has stated that Vidal is his number one target this summer, a claim which has been made about a number of players the Old Trafford side have been linked to in this window.

Juventus are, understandably, not that keen on letting one of their star players leave the club but given the right financial incentive and the right words in Vidal’s ear from his agent, they may be powerless to stop it happening.

More is expected on this story later in the week.
