Manchester United are set to offer Juventus £48million for Arturo Vidal and double the player’s wages, according to reports in Italy this morning.
Gazetta Dello Sport says the player’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, will approach the Italian club this week with news of interest from the Premier League side.
It claims Manchester United will bid €60million for the Chilean, who in turn will be offered a four-year contract worth around £6million per annum, as Louis van Gaal continues to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.
Vidal has been one of Manchester United’s summer transfer targets, despite appearing to rule out a move last week.
But the Italian news provider claims the temptation of a huge contract from the club could tempt the 27-year-old midfielder away from Juventus, who would have to match the pay packet offered by Old Trafford if they are to have any chance of keeping him.
