Vidal-Morata deal to end Man United, Arsenal, and Tottenham pursuit

Real Madrid and Juventus are set to agree on a part-swap deal that will see Man United target Arturo Vidal move to the Bernabeu and Alvaro Morata to Turin, meaning Arsenal and Tottenham miss out on the Spanish striker, Express reports.

Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal has been a Manchester United target for some time ever since his impressive performances with Juventus, which has led the Serie-A side to three consecutive league titles.

Although Juve boss Antonio Conte is looking to keep his star man, reports suggest a £50million bid would be enough to bring the 27-year-old enforcer to Old Trafford.

But it seems Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti is also a fan of the former Leverkusen midfielder, deeming him the perfect replacement for an ageing Xabi Alonso.

A potential deal swings in favour of the Spanish giants as they are willing to part ways with starlet Alvaro Moratta, who Juve are keen to link up with strikers Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente in a new attacking 4-4-3 setup.

It would be a big blow for Arsenal and Tottenham, who have been monitoring the 21-year-old since the January window.

Reports in Spain have claimed that Morata has already agreed personal terms with the Bianconeri, hinting that the London duo must search elsewhere for attacking options.
