It has been widely reported that Manchester United are hoping to get their hands on Arturo Vidal by offering Juan Mata as bait, but it seems that Juventus have other ideas.
Vidal has been linked with United for months, but rumours are growing in volume after the Chilean found himself in disciplinary trouble for a late night brawl in Turin.
While Manchester United are reportedly hoping to trade in Spanish international Mata either as a swap or part-exchange deal, Juventus seem to have set their sights elsewhere.
The 23-year-old is believed to be keen to leave Bayern Munich to find more regular first-team football and is also wanted by Galatasaray.
It is thought that around £17 million would be enough to secure Shaqiri, which would see Juventus save some money if they were to raise the expected £40 million plus for Vidal.
The other reason Juventus prefer Shaqiri is that his salary is a more reasonable £2 million rather than Mata's vast income of around £8 million per year, which the Old Lady would never be able to match.
