Liverpool and Manchester United fans here inside the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling downbeat after reading the news from the Daily Star, with the publication claiming Juventus star Arturo Vidal has signed a five-year deal with Real Madrid.
There’s been a few spilled pints here in the Transfer Tavern with claims that Vidal is set to sign a five-year deal to transfer to Real Madrid from Juventus, following talks between Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich and Real’s director general Jose Angel Sanchez.
But although there are reports of talk, the Spanish giants are yet to agree a fee with the Serie A side as they want to lower Juventus’ €30m (£21.2m) asking price.
The 28-year-old has recently been a top target to a number of Premier League sides with Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal looking to strengthen his midfield options, and although a deal looked to be close, and agreement never surfaced.
A group of Manchester United fans over by the pool table admit they are gutted to see this news, and would have loved to have seen the midfielder ply his trade at Old Trafford next season!
