Manchester United fans have been eagerly awaiting an update on Arturo Vidal in the Football Transfer Tavern and one has finally come their way, courtesy of sources at The Independent.
The Chile international’s move to Old Trafford looks as though it could be back on with sources claiming he has agreed a contract worth a staggering £182,000-a-week.
Vidal has been United’s top target this summer with Louis van Gaal eager to strengthen that underperforming central midfield area.
It looked as though the deal had been called off amidst reports that van Gaal was concerned about making an official bid after Vidal suffered a worrying knee injury.
But that issue seems to have been put to one side with Italian newspaper La Stampa claiming that the midfielders agent has negotiated a deal with United worth an unbelievable £182,000 a week.
Vidal has refused to rule out the prospect of joining United this summer and now looks set to become Louis van Gaal’s third signing following the arrivals of Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera.
Manchester United fans. Is Vidal worth that sort of money? Are you concerned about the knee injury mentioned previously? Let us know your thoughts below.
