Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal will keep a close eye on Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal at the World Cup, according to the Manchester Evening News.

Van Gaa'ls Dutch side are set to come up against the Chileans in their final group game on June 23, however it appears that the boss will keep a close eye on Vidal.

The Manchester United boss' first priority, however, will be leading his national side to the knockout stages of the World Cup, and the Chile clash could prove a make or break match for his side.

From a Manchester United perspective, though, it appears that Vidal is firmly on his radar, and he could look to bring the highly rated 27-year-old to Old Trafford this summer.

The Red Devils are certainly in need of midfield reinforcements after a nightmare campaign under David Moyes last season. The likes of Marouane Fellaini, Tom Cleverley and Michael Carrick all proved far too inconsistent for the former champions in 2013/14.

It remains to be seen as to whether Manchester United make a move for the Juventus superstar, however a potential move could hinge on his World Cup performances.

Ex-Manchester United man - and Vidal's current club teammate - Paul Pogba has also been linked with a switch to the Theatre of Dreams, however any deal looks unlikely after the French international was valued at £60 million.

A move for Vidal, however, could still materialise this summer, as Van Gaal looks to strengthen ahead of next season.
