Tuttosport: Vidal agent is in Manchester

Arturo Vidal

Italian newspaper Tuttosport is intensifying rumours linking Arturo Vidal with Manchester United, claiming that the player's agent is in Manchester.

Turin-based newspaper Tuttosport, which is often first with Juventus transfer news, is reporting that Arturo Vidal's agent Fernando Felicevich is headed for Manchester.

The future of Vidal has been a source of intense speculation for weeks despite the Italian champions insisting that he is staying put.

It has been suggested that Manchester United could be willing to offer £50 million, which would be a tough sum for the Old Lady to refuse.

Yesterday it was widely reported that United are ready to double Vidal's wages and the player seems open to the idea of the move.

Tuttosport now claims that Juventus fans have reason to fear for the future of the midfield star because his agent is attempting to drive a move forward.

Felicevich is known to be in the UK, but he is thought to be there to complete another client, Gary Medel's, move from Cardiff City to Inter.

However, Tuttosport believes that Felicevich is using the trip to try and convince Manchester United to table the necessary sum to convince Juventus to relinquish their hold on Vidal.

Juventus fans are certain of where they want Vidal to be playing next season and spent much of the Bianconeri's 0-0 friendly draw with Cesena earlier in the week chanting for the Chilean to stay.
