Arturo Vidal has thrown more fuel on the fire surrounding a proposed move to Old Trafford after signing a Manchester United shirt, reports The Daily Star.

The Chilean was photographed signing a plethora of merchandise for fans during Juventus's pre-season training camp in Australia. One fan was lucky enough to come away with a personalised message on his Manchester United shirt.

All signs point to Manchester

It is just one more sign that Vidal is set to join Louis van Gaal's revolution at Manchester United. His antics with the pen followed news that his agent, Fernando Felicevich, was spotted at Wembley to watch Arsenal's 3-0 victory over Manchester City.

Tuttosport claims that the agent will now meet with Old Trafford officials to try to push through a deal for Vidal. Juventus have set their price at €50 million and are expected to demand every penny. The Turin outfit are under no pressure to sell with Vidal already declaring his willingness to remain with the Old Lady.

However, Vidal would have known full well what he was doing when he signed one fan's Manchester United jersey, and has given fans of the 13-time Premier League champions reason the be hopeful over a deal.

Vidal is widely considered to be top of Van Gaal's wish list and Manchester United have given the Dutchman the financial backing to make the move happen.

Struggle continues

Van Gaal has so far failed to impress in the transfer market. Manchester United's notable additions in Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera were both sealed before he officially took over as manager and no one has followed.

Thomas Vermaelen was rumoured to be a big target for Manchester United, but the former Arsenal captain instead decided to join La Liga giants Barcelona. Mats Hummels is also looking like a lost cause while a deal for Juan Cuadrado is again threatened by interest from Barcelona.

With no Champions League or Europa League football on offer next season, Manchester United were always going to struggle to attract top talent. They have big money to offer both clubs and players, but footballing concerns remain the biggest impasse for negotiators to surmount.

Holland's utility man Daley Blind appears to be the most likely addition as Van Gaal prioritises defensive reinforcements after the departures of Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand.
