The transfer saga of the summer seems to be finally over, but unfortunately for Manchester United fans its not gone the way they wanted. Arturo Vidal has taken to Twitter to all-but confirm that he’ll remain a Juventus player for another year at least. Whether or not this is what he really wanted is another matter however…
Manchester United have been long term admirers of Vidal, but no formal bid was ever made to Juventus, and it looks as though problems with his knee have definitely put the Old Trafford hierarchy off.
The move was always being pushed from Juventus’ end and Vidal’s agents, but it looks as though they haven’t been able to shift the 27-year old Chilean away.
Personally I would’ve loved to have seen us take a gamble on him, but at the end of the day the transfer fees mentioned were astronomical, and it is a risk when he could potentially end his career prematurely if he knee fails him.
