Manchester United are to return with one last colossal offer for Arturo Vidal, in a last ditch attempt to convince Juventus to sell, according to reports in Italy.

Italian source TuttoSport offers an update on the information which surfaced yesterday claiming that Louis van Gaal had given the green light for a big bid to be made, and states that the next attempt from United to sign Vidal will be the last that comes from Old Trafford this summer. The Red Devils are said to have been focusing a large share of their attentions in the transfer market on getting the Chilean international on board with Van Gaal’s revolution, but as of yet have been unsuccessful in their attempts.

However, despite certain reports claiming that United’s plans to acquire the 27-year old playmaker had fallen by the wayside, TuttoSport speculates that Van Gaal is preparing for one more bite at the cherry, and will even stump up €50million in order to ensure it has the best possible chance of producing positive results.

Vidal the United target

Having been a target of Old Trafford chiefs for sometime now it’s no wonder that Vidal finds himself top of the wanted list coming off the back of the World Cup in Brazil. The Chile international was sensational in the group stages, and almost inspired his nation to a surprise win over the hosts in the second round.

That, on top of the fact that Van Gaal is a known admirer of his talents, is more than enough to justify the Red Devils attempting to convince Juve to sell. It’s said that United are prepared to offer him €6.7million a year if they are successful in reaching an advanced negotiating stage, though the €50million offer will first have to be accepted for things to reach that stage.

The plot thickens

As of yet new Juventus boss Massimo Allegri hasn’t offered much of an indication as to where he stands on the idea of Vidal being let go, despite the fact that his predecessor, Antonio Conte, was firmly against the idea. The arriving manager will likely have plans of his own to put into practise but, as has already been made clear, he is going to have to raise funds from the sale of his current players if he wants to make big purchases.

As such one would assume there is some margin, albeit a small one, for the idea of Vidal joining United to blossom. The Chilean may well jump at the idea of trying his hand in the Premier League - thanks in no small part to the lucrative salary he’d be on - and his club could cash in on him and focus on retaining the services of Paul Pogba moving forward instead.
