Serie A champions Juventus have asked Manchester United for two players in exchange for midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to Metro.
The Italian outfit have been dead against selling their Chilean holding-midfielder, but with United refusing to give up on signing him, according to reports, the Serie A side are now willing to do business with Louis van Gaal's side.
United have been monitoring Vidal for months now, and he is also attracting interest from Premier League duo Liverpool and Chelsea, but it seems that they have both withdrawn their interest, which leaves United a clean run at landing the playmaker.
According to numerous reports, United have already made three different bids for Vidal, ranging from £37million, to £47.7m, but it now appears the Italian side are keen on signing two of United's own players, and they could offer a potential player-swap deal.
Juve are showing interest in Portuguese winger Nani, and Mexican striker Javier Hernandez, both whom are on the fringes of United's first-team and both could be willing to leave Old Trafford this summer.
Despite talks suggesting that Vidal has already taken part in medical tests for United, Juventus have firmly denied those reports and have dismissed everything suggesting that Vidal is ready to force a move to England, but they are now loosening their grip on one of their star-assets, and they are now ready to hold formal talks with the Premier League side, but it's not money they want.
Both Nani and Hernandez are struggling to get into United's first-team, and with Van Gaal set to leave them out of the side as well, a potential swap could take place.
The Dutchman has been clear that he still wants a centre-midfielder, and Vidal is his number-one option, so he could decide to lose the two outcasts in order to land their number-one target. Hernandez is struggling for game-time behind the likes of; Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck, whilst Nani will struggle to fit into Van Gaal's preferred 3-5-2 formation.
Despite not featuring regularly for the club, Nani signed a new five-year deal at Old Trafford, which was offered to him by former-manager, David Moyes.
