Man Utd plan £25m bid for Juventus defender

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is keen to sign the 25-year-old, should Nemanja Vidic leave Old Trafford this summer, according to The Sun.

Chiellini has two years left on his contract with the Old Lady, but it is believed the club would accept a bid for him.

Manchester City and Real Madrid have both been linked with a move for Vidic in recent days.
