Manchester United have rekindled their interest in signing Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to the Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport.
The 28-year-old was linked with a move to Old Trafford throughout the last summer transfer window. However, the player's injury concern forced the Red Devils to end their interest in making an approach.
The Old Lady sealed the domestic double by winning the league and the cup competition. The Chilean international has been in impressive form this season in all competitions. He played a key role in the Champions League second leg semi final clash against Real Madrid, which saw them win the two legged tie 3-2 on aggregate.
Juventus are on course to win the treble and Vidal's partnership alongside Paul Pogba in the midfield has been vital for the Turin club. Despite his brilliant display throughout the season, the Serie A winners are willing to let him leave.
Massimiliano Allegri has set his sights on landing Chelsea star midfielder Oscar in the summer transfer window. The Italian side are willing to sacrifice Vidal and are going to use the funds raised from his sale in securing the Brazil international's services.
The situation has alerted Louis van Gaal's side and they are looking to bring Vidal to Old Trafford in the summer transfer window. South America's agent Fernando Felicevich is also a representative for Vidal's compatriot and Arsenal star Alexis Sanchez.
Felicevich was in attendance at Wembley during the Gunners' 4-0 victory over Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on 30 May. It is believed that Arsenal are also interested in Vidal and his agent will hold talks with two English clubs over a potential transfer of his client to England.
The north London club were believed to give the 20-times English champions some competition in securing his services. However, Arsene Wenger has denied Arsenal's interest in landing the Juventus star "at the moment."
"Arturo Vidal? You [the journalist] must be from Chile! We have good midfielders and at the moment we are not looking at Arturo Vidal," Wenger explained.
Despite the Frenchman's latest comments, Arsenal could still challenge United for Vidal and their desire to land the midfielder could be further boosted if Chelsea allow Oscar to join Juventus.
Vidal could leave his current employers if either United or Arsenal make a €40m (£28.6m, $43.8m) bid this summer.
