Man United: Could Vidal's Injury Ruin Dream Transfer?
Manchester United have been heavily linked to Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal in these past weeks, amid speculation that Vidal would be keen on a move to Manchester. Vidal was a key player for Chile during their successful World Cup campaign, and he may want to join fellow countryman Alexis Sanchez in the Premier League, following Sanchez's move to Arsenal - but United are worried about Vidal's knee injury, according to the Mirror.
It has been reported that Manchester United executive Ed Woodward is unwilling to pay the £34 million pounds that Juventus have demanded for Vidal until they get more information on the situation, but Vidal, himself, is dead keen and has commented on the speculation by saying "Anyone would love to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world". The move may not materialise, unless either United decide to pay the asking price, or Juventus accept a lower offer.
United have already brought in one central midfield player this summer, with Ander Herrera agreeing to join the club from Athletic Bilbao. Marouane Fellaini's deadline day signing from Everton certainly did not go to plan, whilst Michael Carrick looked to be regressing last season. Vidal would give United immense power in midfield, as well as the qualities of a Box-to-Box that they have lacked in recent times. Vidal would ensure that United would be much harder to dominate in midfield, and exude a Roy Keane like aura in the middle of the park.
