Manchester United are reportedly eyeing up a double swoop for Juventus duo Arturo Vidal and Angelo Ogbonna, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Old Trafford club were repeatedly linked with a move for Chilean international Vidal during the summer months, but the club never put together the right financial package to ensnare one of the Old Lady of Turin’s prized assets.
Dutch manager Louis van Gaal was reportedly concerned about Vidal’s knee, which meant that the club were not willing to lay out the significant fee demanded by the Serie A side.
However, Vidal is now back in action for Juve, and Van Gaal is therefore willing to return with another bid for the player in January.
The Manchester club are apparently not only keen on Vidal, however, with the side hoping to bolster their defensive ranks by adding Ogbonna too.
Reports in Europe suggest the duo could be snapped up for a combined fee of £52 million, with Vidal set to cost £40 million and Ogbonna set to cost £12 million.
