Manchester United are now on the verge of signing Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from Juventus after the 27-year-old reportedly completed a medical with the club ahead of his transfer to the Red Devils, according to the Metro.
United have been chasing Vidal throughout this summer and despite Juventus denying any rumours regarding a possible transfer for him and insisting he will remain with the Turin club, reports yesterday suggested that the Chilean international was adamant to move to Old Trafford this summer.
Vidal to United?
Although Vidal has apparently passed a medical with United, it is yet to be confirmed that the two clubs have agreed a fee for the transfer. The 27-year-old has suffered numerous knee and ankle problems in the pass, and it is believed that United wanted to check up on those injuries before committing to a monstrous deal that is rumoured to be worth up to £47million.
It is understood that the checks took place in Vidal's home nation of Chile, but it is unclear whether Juventus gave authentic permission for the medical in the first place.
The Red Devils have already pledged a whopping £200,000-a-week wage if the Chilean decides to move to United and it is said that Juventus are the only thing left to agree with the deal.
