UK Back Pages: Manchester United's Pursuit of Vidal Heating Up

Sean SwabyUK Staff WriterAugust 7, 2014

Manchester United's long-rumoured pursuit of Juventus star Arturo Vidal is apparently heating up, as they've again been linked to a £45 million move. 

Arsene Wenger's shots at Manchester City hit the news, as do two well-known names in Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani.

The Star leads with Vidal, the Chilean superstar whose name has been connected to Manchester United for weeks now. It also runs with the link between Falcao and Liverpool.

The Sun focuses on Wenger's attack on a potential deal worked out between Manchester City and his former right-back Bacary Sagna before it was legal, along with criticism over their move for Frank Lampard. It also claims that the high asking prices for Cavani and Falcao are scaring away English clubs.
