Manchester United target Juventus star

27 September 2012 08:56

Manchester United are lining up a move for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been linked with a number of attack minded midfielders to eventually replace Paul Scholes, however the Italian club's £40m valuation for the Chilean could prove a stumbling block.

Also with Fergie comparing United youngster Nick Powell to a young Paul Scholes, he may decide to hold off from making any big money signings.

“Nick Powell is going to be a really good player," said Sir Alex.

“He has a great temperament, is two-footed and quick.

“He is a good physical specimen and has terrific vision. We hope Powell fills Paul Scholes’ boots."
