£30m Manchester United target interested in move: should Van Gaal snap him up?

Image for £30m Manchester United target interested in move: should Van Gaal snap him up?

Arturo Vidal (Juventus)In the last 12 months or so, Manchester United have added Marouane Fellaini, Juan Mata and Ander Herrera to their midfield. With this in mind, is it not a little strange that The Red Devils continue to get linked to more expensive, attacking-minded midfielders? Haven’t they filled that void yet?

That’s a difficult question to answer. After all, to know for sure, we’d need to know if Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini are going to improve on last season’s performances.

Whilst the Spanish ace had the occasional good game, Marouane Fellaini failed to impress on the majority of his appearances. A lot of money has been spent on them both and as of yet, they’ve failed to produce the goods. The hope will be that this changes next season.

But Louis Van Gaal can’t afford to rely on them turning their form around. I wouldn’t be surprised if he made yet another addition to his midfield.

This brings me to The Mirror‘s claim that Chilean ace, Arturo Vidal, could be interested ‘in playing under Louis Van Gaal at Manchester United’. Could the two entities prove to be the perfect match?

Van Gaal has already admitted that he likes the Juventus midfielder and that he tried to sign him whilst he was in charge at Bayern Munich. Now the aforementioned source claims that the Dutchman is considering a £30m offer for his long-term transfer target.

Whether that’s enough to tempt Juventus into selling remains to be seen, but there’s little doubt that he’d be a good addition to this Manchester United side. If the player really is interested in a move to Old Trafford, then this deal would be something of a no brainer.

Let’s just hope that Louis Van Gaal also sees things this way. If he wants to get the likes of Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini fired up, bringing in some serious competition could be the way forward.

What’s your take? Do Manchester United need to make a further addition to their midfield? Would Arturo Vidal be a good option?
