Red Devils have reportedly opened negotiations with the agent of Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal over a potential winter transfer. The 32-year-old midfielder has not played much for the Blaugrana this campaign and is growing frustrated with his situation.
The report explains that Red Devils and Inter Milan seem to be the main clubs in the running for Arturo’s signature and that he could move for nearly £13m this January, with the Premier League clubs already contacting his agent Fernando Felicevich about a possible deal.
It stays to be seen who will win the race for Vidal’s signature, but it’s suggested in the report that he could be keen on a reunion with his former coach Antonio Conte at Inter.
Man United, however, will surely be hoping they can persuade Chile international to choose a move to the Theatre of Dreams instead, with the Norwegian manager badly in need of more quality in that defensive midfield position.
Despite Chilean midfielder looking somewhat past his best, he still looks like he could be an upgrade on the likes of Nemanja Matic and Fred, who have been well below par for the Red Devils for some time now.
Arturo has plenty of experience in several top leagues, having won four Serie A titles, three Bundesliga titles and one La Liga title, among other domestic honours. Even if only a short-term fix at Man United, Vidal could be a bargain signing for the reported fee of £13m and give Solskjaer a much-needed lift in the second half of the campaign.
