Manchester United transfer gossip: United ‘agree to £40m Vidal deal’, De Vrij’s agent denies deal

by Sam Peoples

Here is the latest Manchester United transfer gossip including Arturo Vidal, William Carvalho and Stefan de Vrij.


Following reports from Italy that said Juventus would be willing to accept bids in excess of €40m for Arturo Vidal, the Daily Express reports United will agree to a £40m deal to sign the Chilean midfielder.

The Daily Star disagrees and believes £50m cash plus Nani is necessary for Juventus to part with Vidal, only a day after reporting £45m plus Nani was going to be the deal.

For a player of his quality in the modern transfer market, even £62m for Vidal would seem a feasible fee to pay.

Meanwhile, Sporting Lisbon’s president Bruno de Carvalho has once again intimated the club will be willing to sell William Carvalho for the right price this summer but said they have not received any formal or informal offers. In terms of a fee for Carvalho, it’s unlikely United would be willing to pay Carvalho’s €45m release clause so Ed Woodward would have to negotiate a deal.

Dutch duo Janmaat and Stefan de Vrij have also once again been linked to United. The Daily Star are reporting that United have been told to pay £7m if they want to land Holland’s right-back and De Vrij’s agent has responded to rumours linking him with a move to United, denying that he had already signed a deal to move to Old Trafford.
