Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has reportedly agreed a deal to join Manchester United and will move to Old Trafford for a fee of £47m.

According to the Express, the Chilean is set to sign a five-year deal with the Red Devils, and the contract is said to be worth around £182,000-a-week.

United's pursuit of Vidal has been one of the longest running sagas of the current transfer window and everyone involved with the Old Trafford club will hope that it comes to a successful conclusion.

Vidal, who moved to Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen, has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the world, and has been a target for several clubs this summer.

Arsenal and Liverpool were linked to the player, with Arsene Wenger also praising Vidal for being the complete midfielder.

It is also believed that the Chilean international has told friends in private that he is keen on joining United, even though he has previously expressed his devotion to Juventus and got a tattoo of the club's name on his arm.

However the move could still collapse as Louis van Gaal is concerned about the knee injury Vidal picked up last term, and which hampered him during Chile's 2014 World Cup campaign.

The Chilean national team coach Jorge Sampaoli has revealed that Van Gaal is looking for answers regarding the improvement of his knee before-rubber stamping to Old Trafford.

In an unconventional move, the Dutchman is keen on Vidal undergoing a medical ahead of other terms being agreed between the two clubs.
