News broke this morning that Manchester United are lining up an eye-watering €40million swoop for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal.
Indeed, personifying a divine mixture of industriousness off the ball and elegance in possession, the Chile international would certainly address the Red Devils’ need for some added dynamism in the middle of the park. He’s been in stunning form for the Old Lady this year too, amassing 18 goals in all competition and helping the Turin side claim a third consecutive Serie A title.
But with the Carrington roster caught in transition and United reportedly prepared to spend around £200million this summer as they welcome Louis van Gaal to the Old Trafford dugout, it’s unlikely the 26 year-old will be their only major signing in the coming transfer window.
With that in mind, here’s a list of SIX signings who could follow Vidal to Manchester United this summer, some inspired by the Chilean’s arrival, others more coincidental.
