'I'm certain Vidal will leave' - Manchester United get encouragement from agent of teammate

Manchester United linked Arturo Vidal was the subject of discussion of an agent of one of his current teammates.

Juventus can't resist a blockbuster offer, claims the agent of Sebastian Giovinco.

Manchester United have been linked with signing the Chilean international, and over the past week speculation has increased.

Vidal is back at training, and time is running out to sign the midfielder before he is due to fly out with Juventus to Asia on pre-season on August 5.

Figures as high as €60 million have been mentioned in connection for the Serie A winner, but it is unknown whether United have actually submitted an offer.

Juventus attacker Giovinco's agent, Andrea D'Amico, believes if they do then they will cave in to the big money on offer.

He told SkyItalia: "Vidal and Pogba are two opportunities, but I do not think both will be sold now.

"Vidal I believe that certainly leave, not because I know anything in particular, but if these numbers come for the Italian market, they must sell and you can not keep a player who receives these proposals."

Reports have claimed United have offered Vidal a wage of £200,000 per week, which would nearly double his current offer at Juventus.

Despite various opportunities, the midfielder has not categorically ruled out leaving the club.

The ball is in United's court, and CEO Ed Woodward has been repeatedly boastful of their finances.

If Vidal is truly a player they want, D'Amico's comments will provide even further encouragement that the midfielder can be tempted and spur them on to act.
