Manchester United agree to €50m deal for Europe’s hot property – report


Manchester United are closer than many imagine to mounting a serious challenge for the title again. With players like Mata, Herrera and Shaw refreshing the squad Manchester United will not lack for creativity next season.

But it’s commonly agreed that Manchester United need more grit and dynamism in the engine room to complement and proliferate the artistry in the side – someone to control the game and to hold the fort while others bomb forward.

Many would argue that Manchester United haven’t had a really top midfield general since Roy Keane. And you owuld have to go back further still for one who also scored loads of goals.

Bryan Robson truly was Captain Marvel for Manchester United as he offered the perfect shield for the defence, went box-to-box and chipped in with his fair share of vital goals.

Arturo Vidal arguably has exactly the same skill set. He’s the ultimate football warrior who also scores goals – 28 in 95 league games for Juventus isn’t bad for a striker, never mind a midfield enforcer.

Reports over the last 24 hours suggest that Manchester United may have an agreement in place. Arturo Vidal is one of Europe’s hottest properties and a much sought after player. Reports yesterday suggested that Manchester United are prepared to pay the €50m (£40m) that Juventus want for their star turn.

The Daily Express reported Friday:

Man Utd agree to £40m deal for Juventus star Arturo Vidal

MANCHESTER UNITED are on the verge of launching a £40million bid for Arsenal target Arturo Vidal after Juventus named their price.

The Daily Star takes a slightly different stance today but the thrust of the story remains that Manchester United want Vidal to take them forward.

MANCHESTER UNITED have been told by Juventus that they will pay £45m and hand over Nani if they want to sign Arturo Vidal.

…reports in Italy claim that the Serie A champions have told United that they will only let the Chilean midfielder leave Turin if they receive £45m and Red Devils outcast Nani

Ooh, let me have a think about that one! In truth, many Manchester United fans are so frustrated with Nani that they would be happy for the club to pay someone to take him off their hands! But if he can facilitate a deal for Vidal in some way then it’s happy days.

LvG has previously stated his love of Vidal and he must be aware of Manchester United’s frailtes in that area of the pitch. He said:

“I always wanted to buy Vidal when he was at Bayer Leverkusen but he went to Juventus.”

So let’s have another look at the lad in action. Manchester United fans: is this the final piece in the jigsaw?




  1. Vidal in no doubt would be perfect in United midfield. l support the idea of bringing him to Old Trafford.

  2. Vidal is a good player but asking for Nani plus the deal is too much, Angel di marial is an excelent player as well. I think he should be our target @ old trafford

  3. Vidal is a general in midfield…, so securing his signature will be a major boost for Man Utd. Go on and sign him on time but we still need to introduce atleast a skillful winger such as Sanchez, Di Maria, Rodriquez or Cuadrado. Pls, sign one or two of these…including a defender such as Hummels, Vermalen or De Vrji…

  4. Pls my darling MANCHESTER UNITED should just do wat is right. If VIDAL is d right choice they should just pay d price & get him cz I can’t wait to c MAN U back to winning ways again. They should also consider getting another quality goalkeeper too.

  5. Is a good idea to buy arturo vidal but pls don’t sell nani, i want all to remember d impact of the player in some of our match last 2 season and last 3 season, against chelsea in both premier league and champion league, he know how to hold ball and skill, even is still better than ashley young and i prefer him than valencia again i want us to remember pogba, man utd does not give him chance to perform dat is why he left look at d money, they want to sell pogba now so pls give him time he will perform than what we espect,

  6. i prefer pogba over vidal.bcoz pogba is 21 years of age and vidal is 27 years of age.if we can pay 40 or 50 million for vidal(27 years) then why cant we sign pogba by adding 10 or 20 million pounds extra for pobga(21years).i also want man utd to sign koke bcoz he has a release or buyout clause in his contract and can also play on utd sell young and cleverly, buy koke,pogba,hummels and james rodriguez.i am sure we can every trophy next year wit these players.

  7. Vidal is ok and did i just hear u say Feli is an elbow guy. Just as u said, Moyes got him as a shield for the back which meant changing from attacking which he was used to. Who is to blame Feli or Moyes who didnt knw y he got him.

  8. Vidal & di maria is people i think man utd should something fast abt them .pls sign this two guys 4 me o

  9. LVG Ewood & Glazier farmily
    pls u9ted do nt need 2 B firthin 4 a place in champion league next season but need 2 win D premier leagues wit D 2 sign stil need 2/1cb 1wing 1mf. V.van dijk hummels,E.garay, magala, vrij,markovic,yevhen,Reus,di maria

  10. ningependa vidal aje utd ila sio kwa kutoa pesa na nani na vilevile thamani yake ni sawa na £35 na sio £45 au £ 40 na nani

  11. In my own paspective,I to see vidal playing with us in manu but been releasing winger to them because nani is stil a good player he only needs time and encoragement,and let see if we can sign james he is a younger and talented player let’s not be luking at money because what u soul is what u reap.references is our rival manchester city.

  12. You say at the start that United have agreed the price but I see nothing in this report saying United have got him. Stop piling on the stress please as I have enough from my Chelsea wife, just tell us when it actually happens. Thanks

  13. Manchster United should be ready To Buy As many players as possible because Chelsea will not take it kind with them next season.
