Manchester United target Arturo Vidal suffers new injury

Published Add your comment

Juventus star Arturo Vidal has suffered a fresh injury problem whilst on international duty with Chile, adding more weight to Manchester United's decision not to sign him.

Vidal was subject to intense interest from Louis Van Gaal's team, but after looking at his medical records, in particular his knee, United decided against the signing of the 27 year old.

The midfielder had played the full ninety minutes in the 0-0 draw against Mexico but after returning to his club side, Juventus' official website confirmed that he had sat out the training session after "complaining of muscular discomfort in his right thigh".

Tests would be carried out on the Chilean's availability for upcoming matches, such as the home game against Udinese on Saturday.

Transfer claims

It backs further claims by Manchester United that they did not pursue the signing of Vidal, despite Bloomberg rating him the eleventh best player in the world for 2013, that the outlay for the box-to-box man would be far too much of a risk.

The Red devils pointed towards concerns over his knee, after undergoing surgery on his meniscus before the World Cup in June, and although he managed to get through the tournament, there are still concerns that Juve's talisman hasn't fully recovered.

Despite concerns, Juventus fans hope that with good game management they can play Vidal as much as they can without burning him out or causing harm, as the player they call The Warrior is a key part of the The Old Lady's team, and was their top scorer in the 2012-13 season, also winning's midfielder of the season for that campaign.
