Man Utd present £26m Vidal offer

It’s reported Sir Alex Ferguson brought Juventus a £26.7m offer for Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Fergie was in the stands of the Juventus Stadium for last night’s Europa League Final, which saw Sevilla beat Benfica on penalties.

The former manager sat next to Juve Coach Antonio Conte and they were seen chatting animatedly.

According to Sport Mediaset, Ferguson was also there to confirm Manchester United’s offer for Juve and Chile midfielder Vidal.

The proposal is thought to be worth €32m – around £26.7m – for the player already linked with Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.

However, this is still some way off the asking price of at least €40m - £36m.

Vidal turns 27 next week and has been one of Juve’s most prolific players this season, netting 19 goals in 49 games in all competition.

Juve would only consider parting with Vidal if it meant keeping Paul Pogba, who they signed as a free agent after his contract with Manchester United expired.
