Arturo Vidal has revealed he is "relaxed" about his future amid claims he is closing in on a move to Manchester United.

Chilean newspaper La Tercera had earlier reported that agent Fernando Felicevich, who was in London last week to work on Alexis Sanchez's transfer to Arsenal, had reached an agreement with United over Vidal during his time in London.

El Mercurio has reported that United have requested details of Vidal's medical history amid concerns over the state of his knee, but AS.com suggests Felicevich believes the move is close.

Vidal said: "I've heard the rumours but I'm not going to talk about it. I'm enjoying my holidays and when I get back to Italy I'll see what happens. I am very relaxed and all of us would like to be in one of the best teams in the world."

ESPN has been informed that Juventus had requested over £45 million for the 27-year-old. There have also been claims that United are closing in on Real Madrid star Angel Di Maria, but sources told ESPN the reports were wide of the mark.

AS.com reported that United have abandoned their pursuit of the Argentina international, with the player said to prefer a move to Paris Saint-Germain.
