Manchester United now odds on for the dream signing – deal close?


Every summer Manchester United appear to have one big superstar target. This year that target seems to be Arturo Vidal of Juventus.

The silver lining in the cloud of a terrible season is that Manchester United appear ready to spend a fortune on new players this summer.

And Vidal could well be the jewel in the crown of Manchester United’s close season business.

He’s a supercharged athlete who can do everything on the football field and we can’t remember a midfielder this complete at Manchester United since Bryan Robson.

Vidal has the some sort of competitive streak and reading of the game as the legendary Roy Keane. But he scores far more goals than the Irishman.

You could imagine him being the catalyst for Manchester United’s next phase of glory.

And all the speculation has lead bookmaker Skybet to shorten the odds on a move yet again. Manchester United are now odds on favourites to sign Vidal this summer at 8/11.

The price has come in twice over the last week and perhaps we are now in the final phase of a transfer, with reports suggesting Manchester United are in negotiations with the player and his club.

At 27 years of age he’s in his absolute prime and isn’t going to come cheap by any means. But we think he’s worth every penny. Let’s have another look at him in action while we wait!

Manchester United fans: Perfect addition?
