Manchester United on the cusp of sealing €40.2m transfer according to reports


Perfect player

This one has been building for a while and, with still no official word from either club, there is an intensifying suggestion that Manchester United are about to agree what must be seen as their major summer transfer.

Because even if they sign a player for more money this summer they are unlikely to buy anyone more important for the team than Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean international is said to be on holiday waiting to fly over for his medical after positive talks between representatives of Manchester United and the player.

The Metro reported late on Saturday:

Manchester United ‘close to signing Arturo Vidal with £32m plus Patrice Evra bid’

Manchester United are on the cusp of agreeing a deal with Juventus to sign their powerful midfielder Arturo Vidal.

United have been holding talks with Vidal’s agent in the last few days and now Chilean outlet La Tercera reports an agreement is very close to sign the player.

Twinned with reports that the ridiculously overrated Angel Di Maria will reject Manchester United to play for PSG this has to be seen as a potentially excellent weekend for Manchester United.

Vidal could offer Manchester United exactly the sort of zip and drive that has been ebbing away from the United midfield over the last few years. With Anderson, Fletcher and Cleverley not stepping up to the plate it is hoped that a new partnership of Vidal and Herrera can offer the sort of combination to get Manchester United firing again.

Let’s see Vidal in action. Manchester United fans: perfect transfer?

    Spot on article. I have been saying all along that Di Maria is not a player for United. Not only is he ridiculously overrated, he is also ridiculously overpriced.
    I have looked at his stats in La Liga and, when you consider that there are only three really competitive clubs, they are actually very poor.
    He is good at running round in circles and falling over. The trouble is that we already have a few at United who are skilled in those arts.
    Just buy Vidal, Hummels and maybe Reus.

    I wonder if you guys commenting here are just real fans, do you just dispose players as if they are gabbage? Do you think every players are umimportant? Disposing Carrick n fletcher would be the error of life, think about your backups n dont just speak cos you play such on FIFA or PES.
