The Chilean international is heading up Louis Van Gaal after the Red Devils cooled off on their interest in Roma star Kevin Strootman.
United pulled out all the stops in their attempts to sign Vidal over the summer transfer window, but could not convince the midfield powerhouse to trade Turin for the Premier League.
However, European champions Real Madrid are also said to be deeply interested in signing the 27-year-old as coach Carlo Ancelotti looks to beef up his squad, meaning Juve will look to take advantage of the two side’s by upping Vidal’s price to a staggering £48m.
