Manchester United have reportedly kicked the tires on a deal for Arturo Vidal, with Juventus said to have placed a price tag of over £40 million on the Chilean international.
United were recently linked with a move for Bastian Schweinsteiger, but Vidal would make much more sense at this stage. Both players are equally versatile, able to carry out multiple roles in the midfield. But Schweinsteiger has a recent history of injury problems and, being 29, doesn’t have as long a Vidal at the top of the game.
Vidal is exactly what United need in the midfield to complement new signing Ander Herrera. Even with the signings of the former Bilbao midfielder and Luke Shaw, there should be more than enough left to make a serious move for the Juventus midfielder.
