Manchester United are edging towards completing a deal for Arturo Vidal from Juventus this summer transfer window, according to Marca.

The 27-year-old has been constantly linked with a move to Old Trafford as the Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal has made the Chilean international a priority midfield signing. The Italian champions are looking for a fee of around €40m and Patrice Evra from United for Vidal.

The left-back extended his stay at United by a year after penning down a new deal. However, the arrival of Luke Shaw is likely to see Evra's appearance being limited next season. The French international has already asked to leave the club, with the Turin club being his next destination.

Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich also represents his compatriot Alexis Sanchez, who recently completed his switch to Arsenal from Barcelona. The report claims the midfielder's representative has already held negotiations with United over his client's potential transfer this summer.

Juventus have received several offers from top European clubs for Vidal's services. However, the Serie A winners have rejected their offers, but are willing to let the Chilean join United with Evra moving in the opposite direction.

The Spanish newspaper claims Vidal has already packed his bags and is set to join United. The player's current contract at Juventus runs down at 2017 and he is looking for a move away from his current employers in the ongoing transfer window.

Vidal has said he is aware of United's rumoured interest in signing him. The midfielder also admitted that it would be a dream to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world.

"I've heard about the rumours, but I haven't spoken more about this subject. I'm enjoying my holidays, and when I return to Italy I'll see what happens. I'm very calm, but anyone would love to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world," Vidal told Chilean newspaper La Tercera.
