Having helped Juventus to three successive domestic titles the 27 year old may be ready for a fresh challenge and an offer of his magnitude may be tough for the Turin side to turn down and the addition of Portuguese attacker Nani may well further entice the Italian giants.
Vidal would offer Man United a creative midfield outlet who can make a real impact in the final third and a real improvement on the likes of Michael Carrick, Darren Fletcher, Marouane Fellaini and Tom Cleverley.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man has racked up 28 goals and 17 assists over the past three Serie A campaigns and is a player who is approaching the peak of his careers and as such would be a massive signing for van Gaal to pull off and clearly he feels he can afford to use Man United bit-part player Nani as bait.
