Real Madrid to beat Manchester United for Arturo Vidal
Kings of Europe Real Madrid are looking to pick top cherry from the best garden yet again. President Fiorentino Perez recently insisted that Los Blancos are not keen to sign Paul Pogba or Sergio Aguero next season, Spanish newspaper AS speculates, Madrid are keen to land Juventus midfielder, Arturo Vidal, who is also a reported target of Manchester United.
Manchester United has been linked Vidal for past 18 months or so, but recently rumours resurfaced when Sir Alex Ferguson was spotted chatting with Juventus boss Conte during Europa League final. It was rumoured that United were trying to negotiate a deal for Vidal, but such reports died down before it created any sort of brouhaha.
The 27-year-old is one of the key players for Juventus and has helped the Old Lady to win three consecutive Serie A titles. He is undoubtedly the best midfielder in the world, in his role and position.
AS reports that Madrid have defined Vidal as their main target to reinforce the midfield, but there is no buyout clause for the Chilean and Juventus won’t make it easy for him to depart and demand €50m, or less if Marcelo or Di Maria are included in the deal – however, Ancelotti doesn’t want to lose either of those players.
On the other hand, United’s interest in Vidal has died down recently. To be honest, no body knows who are they targeting at, therefore, it is safe to conclude Madrid are in a better position than them to negotiate any sort of deal than Manchester United at the moment.
