The plot thickens in the saga of Arturo Vidal, with the player now reportedly agreeing to join Manchester United.
Nick Lustig of the Daily Star says that El Mercurio believe the Chile midfielder has verbally agreed terms with Louis van Gaal and is set to sign for a £47 million fee, on a four-year contract with the Red Devils that is worth £120,000 a week.
Juventus are believed to be unwilling to match the package that United have put together for the player and now expect Vidal to leave them, per Lustig.
Also, Jamie Sanderson of the Metro reports that Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich is locked in talks with Juve and is "working around the clock" to secure his client's transfer to the Premier League giants.
Felicevich is keen to conclude the deal in the coming days, with Juventus saying they will not consider any sales after August 6, per Sanderson.
