Gossip: Juventus want £45million plus Nani for Arturo Vidal

Manchester United are preparing a mega-money bid for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal according to this mornings Daily Star. The 27-year old is regarded as one of the best holding midfielders in world football, and signing him would be a real message to fellow Premier League rivals, showing that we can still attract the huge names.

Lets be honest, Arturo Vidal has everything you’d need as a midfielder. He works hard, tracks back, doesn’t shirk a tackle, has an excellent passing range and even scores goals – he’s the complete midfielder. Alongside Ander Herrera, and someone with a bit more flair like Juan Mata, that could be a midfield trio that clubs would certainly fear.


I’d happily let Nani go if it was the clincher to bringing Vidal into Old Trafford. On his day, Nani is arguably one of the best wingers in the world. Sadly for us though, his inconsistency often lets him down.

With Chile now out of the World Cup, and if this deal has real truth behind it, you’d expect to hear something official sooner rather than later. Hopefully Edward Woodward can get this one done as quickly as possible.

(For some reason, the back of the paper says £50million but the actual article says £45million).

Just how much of an impact would it be if we managed to sign Arturo Vidal? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.

  1. The papers haven’t a clue it’s all speculation. LVG is an admirer of Vidal but other than than the only link is that united are looking for a midfield battler and this is the best man for the job but the figures mentioned are pure guesses he could go for £37m plus Nani AND Evra he could go for £60m with no players and join Madrid or he might not leave Juventus at all no-one knows.

  2. vidal,rodreguez,sanchez , di maria or hummels will not be at utd next season, more likely vermaelen & a handful of dutch players. Its all the papers fabricated stories.
