Express Sport revealed yesterday that the Red Devils have been given just a week by the Serie A champions to complete a move for their top asset, and it appears that Louis Van Gaal has wasted no time as he looks to beat the deadline.

The Dutchman is determined to add Vidal to his ranks after launching bids for Real Madrid's Angel Di Maria and Fiorentina's Juan Cuadrado, and is ready to scrap a controversial 'medical-before-money' strategy in order to secure the Chilean's signature.

And a move for Vidal appears to be even more likely as reports in Italy claim that Hernandez is on the verge of joining the Turin giants on a permanent deal.
