Manchester United have finally edged closer to signing Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal after The Metro reported that the Chilean has agreed personal terms with the Premier League club.

Speculation has been high since the end of last season about the future of Vidal, and with a number of clubs interested in signing him, a transfer battle was set to take place this summer.

However, despite reported interest, it has only been United that have stepped up their enquiries and it's believed that they have finally made a breakthrough, by agreeing personal terms with the 27-year-old.


According to reports, United have offered Vidal a staggering contract worth £182k-a-week, which has been accepted by the midfielder, and all that's left now is for the two clubs to agree a price for the star.

It's been suggested that The Red Devils will pay anything up to £50million for the Chile international, and after Edward Woodward revealed the club have 'unlimited' funds to spend on strengthening their squad, it's expected that Juve will want as much as possible from the Premier League giants.

Busy summer 

United are in need of a successful and busy summer after their dire season under David Moyes last year, and with Louis Van Gaal now at the helm, the club have already managed to land Luke Shaw from Southampton, and Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao, but Vidal still remains his number-one target.

Reports in Spain are suggesting that Vidal's agent, Fernando Felicevich, who has been pushing through the move, dealt with the terms with United and quickly agreed on a five-year deal worth just shy of £200k-a-week, and it's now down to the two parties to reach an agreement for a fee.

United are now hopeful that Vidal will try and push through a move to the Premier League, and they are hoping that if a transfer request is handed in, they could sign him cheaper than originally planned.

It's believed Juve want at least £42m for their prized-asset.
