The 27 year old has been constantly linked with a move to Man United with some sources even claiming that the Chilean has already agreed terms on a contract with the Premier League side and now the player’s representative, Fernando Felicevich, is apparently ready to meet van Gaal to thrash out a move.

Fernando Felicevich was in London yesterday to watch another of his clients, Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez, in action in the Community Shield and will meet Man United’s manager in the coming days.

Vidal has won three successive Serie A titles in his three seasons in Turin but may be concerned about the club’s inability to make a real impact in the Champions League and the departure of boss Antonio Conte could also lead the former Bayer Leverkusen man to believe the time is right for a fresh challenge.

This source claims that unwanted pair Marouane Fellaini and Javier Hernandez could be offered to Juventus as bait in pursuit of the South American star.
