Transfer news: Manchester United plan double swoop for Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba - reports
David Moyes reportedly keen to sign the Juventus pair
Tuesday 14 January 2014
David Moyes has reportedly held talks with Juventus as Manchester United consider a daring double move for midfielders Arturo Vidal and Paul Pogba.
The Man United manager watched the Turin side take on Cagliari on Sunday and reportedly met with boardroom boss Beppe Marotta in order to discuss signing either or both of the players.
However Moyes looks unlikely to be successful in his attempts to lure Pogba back to Old Trafford while any move for Vidal seems certain to have to wait until the summer.
Pogba only left United 18 months ago, a move Zinedine Zidane described as "the biggest mistake of Alex Ferguson's career", but his signature now is thought to cost around £40m thanks to interest from super-wealthy Paris Saint-Germain.
However despite the attentions of the French club, Juventus are keen to hold onto their young French star with Marotta saying: "From our point of view, we do not want to sell Pogba and, so far, we have closed the door to any possible buyer."
