Manchester United have been hit with a blow in their chase for Arturo Vidal, after it was revealed that Real Madrid are set to make a €40 million bid for the Chilean international.
In fact, Juventus will almost certainly be more keen to accept that bid than any effort from Man Utd, with Real willing to offer Sami Khedira as part of the transfer, giving Juve a direct replacement for one of their key players, as reported by fichajes.net.
The Old Lady of Turin would almost certainly not turn down an opportunity to replace their highly talented midfield dynamo with a recent World Cup winner and experienced midfielder.
This would come as a blow to Man Utd, who have targeted Vidal since the summer but consistently found themselves unable to push through a move.
Should the offer be made, Man Utd would likely have to pay €60 million to match the bid, putting Vidal in an expensive bracket reserved for the world’s top talents.
