And if Louis van Gaal gets his way that marquee signing will be Juventus’ Arturo Vidal with the Daily Star reporting that the Dutchman is ready to launch a club record £47.5 million bid for the Chilean.
The Red Devils are are also willing to double the 27-year-old’s current salary by offering him a bumper four-year £120,000-a-week deal.
Reports now suggest that Vidal’s representative, Fernando Felicevich, will hold crunch talks with Juventus today to demand they match United’s wage offer or let his client leave.
Vidal only arrived back in Italy yesterday after being given an extended summer break following his involvements with Chile in the World Cup.
But if reports are right it could prove to be a short spell back in Italy with Louis van Gaal adamant that he will get his man at any cost.
The former Bayern Munich manager is also planning a whopping £40 million plus offer for Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria.
This means that if the Dutchman is successful in his pursuit, the Manchester club will have spent well over £110 million following the signings of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.
