Manchester United have been given a huge boost in their long running chase for Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, after it was revealed that the Serie A side no longer believe Vidal to be indispensable, as reported by the Daily Express.
The Old Trafford club have been repeatedly linked with a move for the Chilean international.
Vidal is considered one of the best midfielders in European football today, and was often thought to be the ideal solution to Man Utd’s long standing problems in the centre of the park.
A move failed to go through in the summer, with the serial Serie A winners not keen on losing one of their star players.
They told the Manchester side that the player was not available at any price.
However, Man Utd are expected to reignite their interest in January, and it seems as though Juve’s perspective has changed.
The Italian side are willing to sell him now, having lost patience with Vidal.
He was fined £80,000 after showing up late for training, having been at a nightclub the night before.
However, they want £40 million from the Red Devils to secure the transfer.
