Manchester United director Sir Alex Ferguson is reported to have discussed a deal for Arturo Vidal with Juventus officials last night.

The former Old Trafford supremo was seen in conversation with Juve coach Antonio Conte during the first half of the Europa League final between Sevilla and Benfica, sparking rumours that have been picked up in the Italian and Spanish press.

AS and Mediaset claim Ferguson quizzed Conte on the likely cost and chances of doing a deal with Juve for the 27-year-old Chile midfielder - a player that he has personally been trying to recruit for over a year.

Vidal signed a contract extension at Juventus in December to prolong his deal until 2017 and is thought to be settled in Turin.

However, Juve are in the process of negotiating a new contract with ex-United midfielder Paul Pogba and may feel that a bid of £32million is sufficient for them to sign a replacement for Vidal and tie Pogba down to a long-term deal.

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli was also at the game and was seen talking to Conte before the start of the second half.
