Juventus have placed a €50 million price tag on midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to SPORT in Spain.
The paper claims that Vidal will force his transfer away from Juventus to Barcelona in the summer, that the Serie A champions would prefer to hold on to Paul Pogba and run some quotes from Vidal citing how he enjoys playing with fellow Chilean Alexis Sanchez.
David Moyes watched the 26-year-old in action when he visited Italy in January and reports from various sources suggested that initial conversations regarding a Manchester United move for Vidal began.
However, SPORT believe that Barcelona will sell Dani Alves and Alex Song for a combined €35 million to fund a move for Vidal.
Players of Vidal’s stature are who Manchester United need to be going after during the summer regardless of where we finish in the league and it should be noted that when Vidal moved to Juventus back in 2011, the Italian side were not in the Champions League.
By signing Juan Mata, securing Wayne Rooney on a long term deal and Robin van Persie pledging his future to the club, Manchester United have already shown that big players are going to be a part of the squad next season.
Last summer, we missed out on the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrer and Sami Khedira due to a catalogue of errors but if a midfielder like Vidal is available for €50 million, Moyes should bite Juventus’ arm off for him because he is one of the best in the world in his position.
Do you think Manchester United will make a move for Arturo Vidal in the summer?
