Manchester United transfer latest: Huge development in Vidal chase

Arturo Vidal

Manchester United have huge hope in their pursuit of Arturo Vidal.

There have been major developments in Manchester United's pursuit of Arturo Vidal.

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has resigned despite winning three Serie A titles in a row, in an apparent disagreement over transfer policy.

Vidal, a central midfielder United dearly need, is claimed to be in the middle of it.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport report United 'may have increased their offer' over the past few hours, leading to Conte's eventual departure, describing it as the 'straw that broke the camel's back'.

Juventus had already failed in their pursuit of Alexis Sanchez who signed for Arsenal this summer.

Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport report that Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich has been in 'almost daily telephone contact' with Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta in attempt to 'create fertile ground for the displacement of Vidal'.

Vidal had been key in Conte's Juventus success, and the future of midfielder Paul Pogba is also under further scrutiny following the manager's exit.

Sky Italia report defender Patrice Evra is 're-considering' his options after seemingly being set for a move to Juventus.
