Serie A champions Juventus have so far made clear they are reluctant to sell but Manchester United hope the latest bid will be enough for them to relinquish.
Vidal has impressed since joining the Turin club in 2011 - winning the title every year since he arrived. The midfielder also proved his ability at the World Cup with his performances for Chile who were eventually knocked out by Brazil on penalties.
