Manchester United transfer gossip: Vidal agent says he’s close to joining Manchester United

by Sam Peoples

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer gossip from around the web about Arturo Vidal.

Things are really hotting up with the Chilean and Spain’s AS and Mundo Deportivo have gone as far as to claim that his agent has confirmed he’s close to joining United.

Their claims are based on the article from Chilean newspaper La Tercera we covered yesterday which discussed Louis van Gaal‘s ‘obsession’ with signing the 29-year-old.

The Telegraph has also added to the growing speculation by insisting that Juventus are lining up a move for Tottenham Hotspur’s Paulinho as a replacement for Vidal.

Italian newspaper Tuttosport has stirred the pot somewhat by saying Manchester City are also interested in signing Vidal and that the Serie A side are interested in Matija Nastasic, something which could open negotiations both ways.

Lastly, Spain’s AS believe United have abandoned their pursuit of Angel di Maria in order to pursue and finalise a deal for Vidal.

Rumours and reports of a potential Vidal move to Old Trafford have steadily increased in volume over the past seven days and while remaining pessimistic in a transfer window is always the safest bet, the buzz about Vidal has continued to grow and United fans are now allowing themselves to dream about signing Vidal.
