Report: Juventus preparing for life without Vidal

Arturo Vidal Chile

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal's move to Manchester United is inevitable, according to the Corriere dello Sport.

The lengthy saga of Manchester United's courtship of Arturo Vidal rolls on with the Italian press suggesting that Juventus are already preparing for his exit.

Chilean international Vidal has become one of the hottest properties in the transfer market and Manchester United are said to be keen to land him.

Vidal's agent Fernando Felichevich is reportedly attempting to persuade United to put in a bumper offer that Juventus will be unable to refuse, but for the time being the midfielder remains with the Old Lady.

Felichevich is said to have already agreed provisional personal terms for Vidal in Manchester which would see him sign for four years at just under £6.4 million per season.

The Corriere dello Sport believes that the transfer will take place before the end of the transfer window, even though things are progressing slowly.

The paper claims that new Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri has already come to terms with Vidal's exit and is preparing for life without him.

Allegri is said to have started drawing up tactics and formations for next year without Vidal and may be counting on having Inter star Fredy Guarin in his place.
