Man United transfers: Arturo Vidal ‘will join Red Devils next month’
Man United transfers: The Red Devils will sign the Chile international in coming weeks, says Fifa-registered agent
Manchester United will wrap up a deal to sign Arturo Vidal from Juventus next month, according to a Fifa-registered agent.
Reports this week have claimed that the Red Devils are poised to make a £42.5m bid for the Chile midfielder as Louis van Gaal looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.
The 27-year-old has emerged as United’s top summer target in recent days following the signings of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.
Now, Giulio Tedeschi – who Spanish media says works on deals across European football – claims that the transfer will be pushed through in the coming weeks.
“The English team is the closest to gaining the services of Vidal and [he will] be with them on the second week of August,” Tedeschi told Cadena Deporte.
Vidal has been one of the key members of Juventus’s all-conquering side in Serie A, scoring 11 goals and making five assists in 32 top-flight appearances last season.
He has won three Serie A titles since joining Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen.
