According to a report in Turin newspaper La Stampa, Manchester United have reached an agreement with Arturo Vidal, and the Chilean wants to move to the Premier League.

In their article they report that United are offering Vidal €12 million a year, which is apparently almost twice what he's currently earning at the reigning Italian champions.

This isn't the first time that we've heard reports of a deal being struck between United and Vidal, with Chilean newspaper El Mercurio reporting last week that the Red Devils had reached a "verbal agreement" ahead of a move to Old Trafford.

If true, then all that remains to be agreed is a fee between the two clubs. Sky Italia apparently claim Juve are holding out for €50 million for their star midfielder, which United are yet to offer up. Personally, TBB finds that hard to believe -- £30 million for one of the world's best players is a ridiculously cheap sum. It wouldn't at all be surprising if they were holding out for more than that.

But for now, we've nothing to do but sit and wait. And wait some more. Only nine days until the football starts, folks!
