Vidal To Liverpool: Can Rodgers Hijack Man United's Dream Deal?

He's good. He's very good. So good that our own Italian football expert Richard Whittle reckons he could even become good enough to win a Ballon d'Or one day and who are we to argue?

He was a rumour mill mainstay before the World Cup and now, after a few great performances for Chile, he has been vaulted back to the front of the queue.

Man United had been patiently waiting for a time to pounce and that time came a few weeks ago as, according to Sky Sports, Vidal told reporters that he "does not know" if he'll remain at Juventus. The Turin club, while very good, lack the glamour of the Premier League and it's no surprise that his head's been turned.

A dynamic midfielder with a tireless engine, the 27-year-old also has bags of talent and one of the worst haircuts we've ever seen. Seriously, it looks like three haircuts in one. He picked up 18 goals in 45 games for Juventus last year which is pretty darn impressive for a centre-midfielder.

It'd be a perfect signing for Man United - trouble is other people have taken notice, most notably arch-rivals Liverpool.

As Rodgers searches to strengthen a side that just missed out on glory last term, they are - according to the Metro - looking to match Man United's £42.5million bid. Which way will this one go?
