Arturo Vidal edging closer to £40million move to Manchester United

According to Jamie Jackson of The Guardian, Louis van Gaal is edging closer in bringing Arturo Vidal to Manchester United this summer transfer window. His current club Juventus, are sticking to their guns in wanting £40million for the Chilean but it is understood this price tag is not an issue for Manchester United.

Vidal is one of the world’s best midfielders and is exactly what Manchester United have been crying out for. He helped Chile reach the last 16 of the World Cup where he once again was very impressive. It is clear Van Gaal wants United’s weak midfield sorted with the signing of Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao already wrapped up. While Vidal is a target so is Dutch international Kevin Strootman, a target for United last season who has since moved to Roma. It is understood a move for him would be in January due to a serious injury that will keep him out until Autumn.

A midfielder is not the only area that needs strengthening following the departures of Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic centre back is also in need of new faces. United have been linked with quite a lot of defenders but Mats Hummels of Borrusia Dortmund and Thomas Vermaelen captain of Arsenal are the main candidates. It is understood that the German international Hummels is Van Gaal’s preferred choice.

    • But what do U pretend, buying experienced star players with peanuts!!!!!
      Remember my friend UTD have nothing to offer except MONEY which is the greatest WEAPON.

  1. i wouldn’t trust JJ. He’s spouted a lot of crap like the rest of the journalists. Ogden, especially Ducker. They think they’re ITK but know very little in reality.

  2. As for Vidal, Juventus should step down the price a little bit , as for Hummels, united should cash in £25-30 to grab him easily coz BVB Dortmund needs cash. I don’t think Vermaelen will be a good addition , splash cash for Garay or Martins Indi , De vrij will be good as well. Sell Mata he is good but not aggressive , sell Young, Nani, Cleverly, Evans and Chicharito this guys are getting extra wages.keep Fellaini he may be of help in more physical games partnered with Carvalho and Herrera rested. Get Dimaria and give Janujza #11 shirt . Make Rooney Captain . This is gonna be Super Man Utd.

    • I think Rooney won’t become captain under LVG. As for Evans, I think he will be used more frequently if he is injury free. I agree Young and Nani should be sold and replaced with a better winger. For centre-back, I prefer Vermaelen because he has many experience and good leadership.

  3. Vidal z 2 gd,sign Vidal,di maria,hummelssanchez,martins indi n de vrij.then offload Nani,young,cleverey,welbeck pliz

  4. Why keep players like Nani, Young, Cleverly, Who just getting free cash offload them and promptly and aggressively sign players who matter let not the remaining 140m go back to the coffers. Y not hijack Sanchez as well at times I this club should be sold to people who love the game not this bloody Americans we don’t attract world class players anymore look at how we’ve been failing on the market Di Maria would be a great wide midfielder.

  5. We should definitely go for Vidal. Hummels, I don’t think will leave Dortmund. Herrera will not be as influential as many believe. As for the Sneijder rumour…He’s 30, and actually not that great. (Awful for Holland against the Argies) use that 16million and put it to someone such as Blind or De Vrij, or even Depay, he’s class. IMO, we need 2 more defenders, 2 mid-fielders, 1 new winger and a new striker. Top priority…Vidal, Hummels & another striker.
