Manchester United’s continued pursuit of Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from Juventus could still be on the cards – but only if the player himself demands a move away from Turin, according to reports this evening from the Daily Mail.
Vidal has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer, with a number of reports suggesting that a deal for the former Bayer Leverkusen man was imminent, but quotes from Juventus director general Giuseppe Moratta seem to contradict this:
“Vidal? We already said that he is not on the market, but the player’s will is decisive.”
This suggests that a transfer to United could well go through, but only if Vidal himself is keen enough on the move to force it through with the Juventus hierarchy.
Considering the fact that the Old Lady lifted the Serie A title for the third consecutive title last season, whilst United will not be competing in European competition next season, suggests that this would be a huge leap of faith from the player.
United fans will be hopeful that Vidal sees his future at Old Trafford, with the club seemingly having put many of their eggs in his basket, with incoming transfer news away from Vidal at United having gone conspicuously quiet since the signing of Luke Shaw was convinced.
