Spanish news platform Mundo Deportivo reports that Vidal is seriously considering joining a Premier League club and it is not the Red Devils.

Sources close to the midfielder claim he is eyeing a move to Newcastle United if they eventually hire Max Allegri, adding that the club 'very attractive growth plan'.

The publication further revealed that the Barca attacker is not moved by Man United's plan for the future, hence the need to focus on Newcastle United's proposed plan.

Although the chances of Allegri becoming the new manager at the Saint James Park have been slashed by bookmakers as the club's £300m takeover nears completion.

The Italian has been jobless since he parted ways with his former club Juventus at the end of last campaign.

Vidal has never played in England, having spent his career with Colo Colo, Bayer Leverkusen, Juventus, and Bayern Munich before moving to Spain.

He worked with Antonio Conte while at Juventus, and the Chilean could be included in any attempt from Barcelona to sign striker Lautaro Martinez.
