Manchester United poised for massive £113m triple swoop

In the latest Manchester United transfer news, the club are reportedly in negotiations with Arsenal, Fiorentina, AS Roma and Juventus stars.

Considering deals for Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera were completed before Louis van Gaal began his tenure at Manchester United, the Dutchman is yet to complete his first official signing in his new post at Old Trafford.

There has been much speculation over whom he could move for, with many names mentioned in the transfer market, however, according to the British press, the 62-year-old trophy-magnet could announce an extraordinary triple swoop in the coming week.

The Independent reference an imminent deal for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, a premier asset perpetually linked with a move to Manchester. According to their report, a deal with the player has been reached that will see the Chilean net £182,000 per week.

There were concerns that the player may not pass a medical examination due to a problematic knee, yet La Stampa - an Italian publication - claim Fernando Felicevich, dubbed the most powerful man in the current transfer window, has "agreed in principle to a deal worth £9.5 million per annum before tax."

With personal negotiations effectively completed, all that is left is to sign off on the £47 million transfer fee with the Old Lady of Serie A.

Joining Vidal at United could be Juan Cuadrado (right), a £36 million import from Fiorentina, write The Express. They claim that United hope to conclude a £36 million for the versatile player who can play wide up top, or even as a wing back in van Gaal's 3-5-2 system.

Manchester United have already been denied once at the negotiating table after the Viola rebuffed a £32 million bid, but the rejection has not perturbed van Gaal from returning with an improved offer.

After it emerged that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is loathe to sell wantaway captain Thomas Vermaelen to United as the centre back is also courting interest from Barcelona, United saw an opportunity to again exploit the market in Serie A due to the apparent availability of exquisitely-skilled defender Mehdi Benatia, of AS Roma (pictured above, denying Carlos Tevez the ball).

The Daily Star claim that even Benatia's price-tag of £30 million has not put United off and van Gaal is keen to meet the valuation in order to conclude the acquisition.

Should all of three of Manchester United's current market activity prove successful, then £113 million in transfer fees - let alone player wages - will have been spent as the Red Devils look to return to Premier League dominance.
