For arguably the most complete midfielder in world football, is £30m enough to prize away a player of this quality?
Arturo Vidal has been a shining light for many years in a dominant Juventus side and has recently solidified his relentless reputation with tough tackling and pinpoint passing in the 2014 World Cup.
The Chilean has chipped in with many goals since moving to the Bianconeri from Leverkusen in 2011, (18 last season in all competitions) linking up beautifully with Pirlo, Pogba and Tevez in a very talented Juventus team.
Vidal, 27, can play out wide with consummate ease if asked and has also played at centre half for Juventus when called upon, his versatility just another string to an already impressive bow. No wonder The Daily Star among many believe that Manchester United are targeting the player.
‘Il Guerriero’, boasts unrivalled work rate and has been a huge reason why Juventus have won three Serie A titles in three years since his arrival, along with two Italian cups.
It’s natural a player of such quality has been linked with some of the best teams in Europe this summer, Vidal is a player who can instantly improve even the most successful side and at 27, he is reaching the peak of his career.
However, with the soaring prices for world class talent in football today, a bid of £30m won’t be anywhere near enough to capture the services of this incredible footballer. Especially for a Manchester United side that can’t offer Champions League football.
