This one is far from confirmed but we like to keep you abreast of all that may be happening in the transfer market.
The Express passes on the rumour news that Manchester United may have lost out to Arsenal in the battle for Juventus superstar Arturo Vidal.
It’s impossible to forget the protracted Manchester United move for the player, which they seem so good at, and which dragged out for most of the last summer transfer window. The problematic knee, along with a crazy asking price, seemed to hinder a move on that occasion but Arsenal have reportedly been quoted a much more reasonable price and could be about to do business after the player came through the season looking unscathed and healthy once more. The Express states:
ARSENAL have agreed terms to sign Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal.
If the reports are to be believed, Arsene Wenger has taken advantage of the fact the Chilean shares the same agent as Alexis Sanchez, who is expected to convince him to move to the Emirates over Anfield.
Both Manchester United and Arsenal have room for improvement in the defensive midfield area and Vidal is a box to box gem who can break up attacks and shield his defence with great mobility and power. But he also gets forward and scores goals – as his 35 goals in 124 games for Juventus attest.
With fellow Juventus star Paul Pogba the subject of such interest transfer speculation already this summer you might imagine that The Old Lady would be keen to hold on to Vidal. But after rising to prominence over the last few years with some superb signings, few would question their transfer policy.
In truth, he’d be an excellent purchase for bot Manchester United and Arsenal. Let’s take look at him in action.
