Juventus pain a boost for transfer hungry Manchester United

Reports are coming out that Juventus will have to sell to balance their books and that either Vidal or Pogba will be required to move on to ensure ‘self-financing’ is maintained.

Juventus Club President Andrea Agnelli who is a board member of FIAT and Exor is a shrewd businessman and will be looking to make Juventus’s rise back to European contention a sustainable one. The 38-year-old has a long time family association with the club through his father Umberto and has overseen the clubs transition to a new stadium, continued recession and the aftermath of the Calciopoli scandal.

The report in the Mirror will be music to Manchester United’s ears as they consider a move for their World Cup midfielder of choice. Arturo Vidal would cost United about £30m which is a figure that Juventus will find difficult to refuse says the report.

The French striker Paul Pogba has an asking price of £60m, an incredible figure considering Man United sold the player to Juventus for just 800k. United will get no bargains out of the deal but a 27-year-old player nicknamed “The Warrior” who would certainly fit the picture of the players so admired at Old Trafford.

Arturo Vidal was a key member of the Chile team and his box-to-box style won many admirers. It also seems that whoever updated his career on Wikipedia is either in the know or has a sense of humour…
