Manchester United news

Juventus midfielder and reported Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has broken down with another knee injury, report the Mail, after he had to quit a routine training session with Chile due to a knee complaint, after an operation over the summer.

The 27 year-old went under the knife at the back end of last season, affecting his displays at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and possibly making United and Louis van Gaal slightly apprehensive about making the kind of offer for Vidal that they were willing to lavish on Real Madrid for Angel di Maria.

It is not yet known how serious the injury sustained by Vidal is, but his club, Juventus, will be hoping that it is only a minor knock rather than recurrence of his knee problems, with the former Bayer Leverkusen man being a key part of Massimiliano Allegri’s set-up in Turin as he looks to secure a fourth consecutive Serie A title.

United were believed to be chasing Vidal for much of the summer after a fine season for Juve as they claimed the league title under the leadership of Antonio Conte, but were never able to agree a fee with Juventus, leading them to other targets such as di Maria during the final days of the window.
