Manchester United transfers: If true this is the easiest decision Louis will ever make

Van Gaal: A man of character

Get it done

Oh those brutes at Juventus drive a hard bargain I tell you. With Manchester United seemingly desperate to land their Chilean international midfielder Arturo Vidal negotiations have been gruelling and protracted.

And, aware of just how much Manchester United want to sign the player this summer, they have thrown a Titanic spanner into the works.

Apparently Juventus don’t care so much about the money. They are pretty happy with the amount being offered. But, if reports are to be believed, they won’t do a deal unless Manchester United agree to swap a player with them.

The Express reports that Manchester United can get their top target for cash plus….wait for it….Portuguese winger Nani!

Man Utd’s Arturo Vidal deal hinges on Juventus’ Nani interest

JUVENTUS have told Manchester United that they want Portuguese winger Nani as part of Arturo Vidal’s proposed move.

We were minded to call The Express and ask if this was some kind of joke. Nani has been so poor for the last couple of years that some Manchester United fans were beginning to believe that the club would have to pay to get the player off their hands.

Juventus got a sensational deal when they took Paul Pogba from Manchester United. This, however, will never be remembered as such a deal.

Nani desperately needs a change of scenery and perhaps a move to Italy will be just the ticket to get his career back on track. Because he has been in a long term decline at Manchester United.

If this truly is the deal breaker then give us a couple of hours and we will easily be able to drum up a dozen fans who will happily carry Nani to Italy and return with Arturo Vidal, if such transport is required.

Manchester United fans: do you still feel confident about signing Vidal?

    Already given up on vidal we should keep fellaini and sign song from barca.Ed woordward has now gone missing and would re-surface on the 2nd claiming how man utd is the biggest club,how they have money and how they couldn’t find good bargains in the market.Joker.

      He’s probably working on signing more commercial clients up to increase the share price for the Glazers to cream some more off the top.

    I also read that they want Hernandez as well as 1 other player (presumably Nani) and £40m so in effect, according to Juve, Vidal’s valuation is about £67m…..yeah right. If that is true then I hope Van Gaal tells them to get lost. There are other potential targets apart from Vidal that could offer just as much in different areas. Schweinsteiger now and Strootman in January would (could) be better than Vidal and cover more positions for the same kind of money as Juve want. (equivalent worth)

    Been saying it for months Woodward should have been packed off with Moysie both need to get out of football do a bit of gardening just leave united alone. We need to get deals done and the man to do that is David Gill get him back to sort out the deals job done.
