Manchester United’s interest in Arturo Vidal was always going to increase following his excellent performances at the World Cup and the Metro have suggested he will be offered £230,000 a week to move to Old Trafford.
It’s an eye-watering amount of money but for a player of his quality and ilk, given that Rooney and Van Persie are on similar money, would be fair given how important to a new look United he could be.
Elsewhere, fresh reports regarding William Carvalho’s move to United have emerged from Portugal where Zero Zero are saying United officials have opened negotiations with his representatives. Although the trail for United has gone cold with regards to his move to Old Trafford, there is still plenty of time for it go to through.
Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez has been linked with United once again thanks to the front page of Mundo Deportivo. Like Vidal, Sanchez’s stock rose dramatically during the World Cup and if United were to go in for the midfielder, you could expect fees of €50m+ to be considered.
Finally, Thomas Vermaelen has been linked with United once again and these fresh claims suggest it is only a case of agreeing a fee with Arsenal to push this transfer through.
