The Old Trafford boss took a personal scouting mission to assess the pair over the weekend and appears to have grown all the more keen to bring the talented midfielders who’s arrival at Man United would represent a much needed overhaul of a ‘problem area’ in his squad.

This source claims that moves for 20 year old French international Pogba, who left Man United for Turin just over 18 months ago, would cost as much as £40m and is certainly a player Antonio Conte won’t want to see leave.

Moyes is said to have spoken of his interest in Pogba and Vidal during talks with Juventus director general Beppe Marotta and perhaps the Italian giants are in need of balancing their books having failed to secure a spot in the last 16 of the Champions League though one would imagine that wouldn’t negate the need to sell both midfield options.

Chilean international Vidal is also valued at £40m and has perhaps been Juventus’s most consistent performer in recent seasons.

Not only is the 26 year old former Bayer Leverkusen man one of the club’s leading assist makers he has also weighed in with his fair share of goals, already netting 13 in all competitions this term.

Vidal could offer Moyes a much needed creative outlet in midfield whilst also offering a genuine goal threat from the centre of the park or out on the flanks.

This source claims that the likes of Anderson, Nani and Fabio may all be offloaded in order to help improve David Moyes’s transfer budget as well as helping to reduce the club’s wage bill.

A move to sign the Juventus pair would be seen as a massive statement of intent from the Premier League title holders, one that they perhaps feel they need to make in view of the distinctly average season they have had thus far this term.
