Manchester United have reportedly made progress in their attempts to sign Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, by including Patrice Evra in the deal.
It was earlier believed that the Red Devils' efforts for the Chilean midfielder had been thwarted by Juventus £40 million price tag.
But it later emerged that United are ready to match the Italian side's asking price for the 27-year-old, who helped Juventus win three successive Serie A titles since his move from Bayer Leverkusen three years ago.
And since Juventus are believed keen on United left-back Patrice Evra, the Red Devils are now reportedly ready to offer the Frenchman in a player-plus-cash deal to land Vidal. According to the Metro, United have reportedly managed to make Juventus agree to part with the Chilean for £32 million plus Evra.
The report further added that Vidal, who is currently on holiday, will head for a medical at Old Trafford after the World Cup.
Meanwhile, Arjen Robben has dismissed speculations of him leaving Bayern Munich to join United this summer.
The 30-year-old winger has been linked with a move to Old Trafford ever since the unveiling of Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal, who led his the Dutch to a third place finish in the 2014 World Cup, as the new United manager.
However, the former Chelsea man has now quashed all rumours, insisting that he will be continuing at the Allianz Arena next season.
"I have a special bond with him (van Gaal). He is the most important coach in my career," Robben said. (Moving to United) is not an option though. I will stay at Bayern Munich," Robben revealed on Dutch television after Holland's 3-0 win over Brazil in the third place play-off.
Elsewhere, Portuguese forward Bebe has revealed that he may be making a move out of United this summer, after failing to break into the Red Devils' first team since his arrival in 2010.
The 24-year-old, who has spent the last three seasons on loan at Besiktas, Rio Ave and Pacos Ferreira, says that he is keen to move back to his native Portugal, with Benfica reportedly interested in securing his signature.
"I think it would be a good opportunity for me. For now I will wait for my agent to resolve it. He will certainly know better than I do whether it's true or not," Bebe told Antena 1. "Of course it would be a great opportunity for me. Maybe I could play more and they could rely on me more. I think it would be a unique opportunity."
