Manchester United & PSG snubbed for “biggest team in the world”

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have been told to forget about signing Serie A midfielder Arturo Vidal because he prefers to be at “the biggest club in the world”.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in the 25-year-old, but a report from talkSPORT claims Paris St Germain are ready to rival them.

However the clubs from Old Trafford and Parc des Princes have been told they aren’t big enough clubs to lure Vidal away from Juventus.

Vidal is a major part of the midfield that helped Juventus win the Scudetto last year without losing a single game.

Reported interest from Manchester United is unsurprising considering criticism they have been receiving for failing to find a likely successor to Paul Scholes as a midfield playmaker, as Vidal’s style would fit the bill well.

However, Ferguson and Carlo Ancelotti will have to look elsewhere as Vidal’s agent has dismissed any notion of a move away from Juventus Stadium.

“PSG? If he is at the biggest club in the world why would he go there?” Fernando Felicevich told

Vidal and Andrea Pirlo have a devastating partnership in midfield and the Chile international also has an eye for goal, having already scored five league goals in 13 appearances this season.
