Chile manager Jorge Sampaoli claims Manchester United want Arturo Vidal, but “have doubts on his knee.”
The English side’s interest in Juventus midfielder Vidal is well known, but so far they have hesitated to meet the minimum £45m price-tag.
“Manchester United want Vidal, but Van Gaal has some doubts,” Chile Coach Sampaoli told El Mercurio.
“Vidal set a great example at the World Cup in Brazil by playing when he wasn’t in perfect shape.
“Now Manchester United want him, but what’s holding up the transfer for $80m is that Van Gaal has doubts on his knee.”
Vidal is currently in Indonesia with Juventus on their pre-season tour.
