Real Madrid are plotting a huge move for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to the Daily Star. The report has suggested that the Spanish giants are ready to offer £32 million plus Sami Khedira in order to land the Chilean ace.
This news will come as a major blow to some of England's elite clubs, with the same report suggesting that the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal are reportedly showing interest in the duo.
Manchester United were credited with interest in Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal throughout the summer, but a move to the Premier League failed to materialise. It appears that the player's knee problem played a part in the transfer failure, with new United boss Louis van Gaal having landed Ander Herrera and Daley Blind in the last window.
Chelsea and Arsenal, on the other hand, have both been heavily linked with a move for Khedira for some time, with it being suggested that they could swoop for him in the January transfer window.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho, of course, has already worked with Khedira at the Bernabeu, whilst Arsenal are in desperate need of improvement in the middle of the park as they go in search of success this season.
However, it now appears that both players could snub a move to England's elite division and move between La Liga and the Serie A. The signing of Vidal, however, would certainly prove a costly one for Madrid who already have Luka Modric and Toni Kross plying their trade at the Bernabeu.
But with Khedira seemingly desperate to move on, it could prove a great piece of business by Carlo Ancelotti to land Vidal in the process. If Vidal was to leave Italy's elite division, then the potential deal may well soften the blow for Juventus fans as the club would have the German World Cup winner next to Frenchman Paul Pogba in the heart of their midfield.
It's extremely likely that the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal will pay close attention to developments in any negotiations between Madrid and Juventus.
