Real Madrid launch massive bid for Manchester United target

vidal.jpgThe Football Transfer Tavern was just about to close-up for the night, when a Manchester United fan came in and ordered a double Jack Daniels on the ‘rocks’. I assumed he’d heard the news that the Red Devils, and Arsenal target, Arturo Vidal had been subject to a bid from Real Madrid, according to talkSPORT.

With Arsene Wenger ready to ‘splash the cash’ and United looking for a replacement for Paul Scholes, the Chilean international currently playing for Juventus was thought to be a main target for both Premier League clubs but it appears the La Liga outfit have stolen a march by making a £36 million bid.

If United and Arsenal do miss out on Vidal it will add further uncertainty to an already stressful transfer window, with moves for Gonzalo Higuain and Thiago Alcantara, respectively, both stalling.

Juventus are in no need to sell and are currently in talks with the former Bayer Leverkusen man over a new contract following a series of impressive displays for the Old Lady, since joining in 2011.

New Madrid manager, Carlo Ancelotti has made the strengthening of his midfield a priority this summer and clearly has the money to spend following the arrival of Malaga’s Isco earlier on in the summer and Real Sociedad’s Asier Illarramendi for a whopping £34 million yesterday.

I wonder if I can get Real Madrid to ‘settle-up’ a few of these bar tabs…

Do Real Madrid stand any chance of landing one of Juventus’ prized assets this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.

      Join the club mate. It’s all doom and gloom at Arsenal too. Mr ego is going to walk straight back into a title win for Chelsea and claim how special he is.
      Higuain , Suarez(RAT) , Rooney and f***ing Pele are coming here BUT no one arrives
