Arturo Vidal

Juventus will not stand in Arturo Vidal's way if the midfielder wishes to leave the club and join Manchester United this summer.

Reports from Chilean newspaper La Tercera have claimed Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich has met with Juventus' director general Giuseppe Marotta in order to finalise a deal that could cost the Premier League side £47m.

But despite a growing number of reports suggesting a deal has been put on the table, the Serie A champions maintain the powerful midfielder remains integral to their plans ahead of the new campaign and will travel with Massimiliano Allegri's squad for their preseason tour of Indonesia, Australia and Singapore.

But amid fresh reports from respected Italian newspaper La Stampa suggesting Vidal is now keen to push through a move to Old Trafford, Marotta admits the final decision will be made by the player, and not the club.

"We have already said Vidal is not on the market, but what the player wants is decisive," Marotta said, speaking at a press conference to unveil the club's new signing Romulo from Verona.

"Vidal has never said he wants to leave and Juventus would only sell him if he wanted to leave. Obviously there are also some timing issues to fulfil such a request, but there is absolutely no reason to even be discussing this now."

La Stampa suggest more talks between Vidal's representatives and Marotta will take place this weekend to discuss an offer that could see the 27-year-old become United's most expensive player of all time.

United boss Louis van Gaal told the press on Friday he is not concerned that the club have not made any signings since the end of June, when they confirmed deals for Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw in the space of two days.

The Dutchman insists he wants to give "the current players an honest chance" but the club's lack of options in midfield remains a concern.

United have already lost one option in Michael Carrick, who is ruled out for three months after suffering an ankle injury, while van Gaal appears set to cut ties with Marouane Fellaini before the season has even started.

The Belgian international, who endured a miserable first season at United following his £27.5m move last summer, is wanted by Napoli, who have since confirmed their interest in taking the midfielder to Serie A although the club are understood to have balked at United's initial asking fee.
