Juventus ace Arturo Vidal looks set to force through a move to the twenty times English champions, Manchester United.
The proposed move to Manchester United has been rumbling on harmlessly for weeks, however it is now gathering momentum. Reports from various sources suggest that the Chilean ace is ready for a change of scenery and has even had medical tests from United's doctors.
A fee of £37million is being touted with Vidal expected to earn in excess of £200,000 a week. Louis Van Gaal and United Chief Executive Ed Woodward have already completed the signings of Ander Herrera from Athletico Bilbao and English international Luke Shaw from Southampton but the Dutchman is still striving to bolster his brittle midfield with what would be a marquee signing.

Vidal has been a key figure for Juventus in midfield, the Italian superpowers have won three Serie A titles on the trot and Vidal has been pivotal in the engine room, providing goals and grit, something the Red Devil's midfield could do with.
United's midfield seriously under performed last season during the forgettable David Moyes tenure and the potential arrival of Vidal could see deals working the other way, possible outgoings could see the likes of Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini seeking new clubs, with Italian side Napoli said to be keen on the big Belgian.
The status of this potential deal is unclear with different sources having conflicting messages, however the deal does seem to be on with the players agent planning to meet with Juve's president too force through a move. The deal could even be finalised this week, subject to further medical tests.
