Juventus prepared to sell Arturo Vidal

Published Add your comment

Serie A champions, Juventus, have reportedly run out of patience with midfielder, Arturo Vidal, and will now listen to £40million offers for him as they look to sell the Chilean international.

Throughout the Summer the Italian giants had to fend off interest for their star-asset, claiming that he was 'indispensable', and no formal offer would  be accepted due to his important to the first-team.

However, after just six games into the new season, Juve officials have now loosened their stance on the midfielder and could even sell him in January after mishaps off the field and before a crunch game with title-rivals.

Off-field Antics

Just hours before the club were meant to face AS Roma in a top-of-the-table clash, Vidal was involved in an incident outside of a nightclub at 5am, resulting in him being fined £80k by the club and also being left out of the crucial game.

Both sides went into the game with 100% records, and despite not having Vidal, Juve ran out 3-2 winners leaving them top of Serie A, and three points ahead of their closest rivals.

Despite it not being entirely revealed what happened with Vidal, officials at the club have reportedly lost patience with him and feel like they've been pushed to the limit with the 27-year-old's actions, which could result in him being sold.

Manchester United Interest

All throughout the Summer, Louis Van Gaal was desperate to sign the Chilean international, despite his knee troubles, and with the Italian side now willing to sell, United may renew their interest in January as their spending looks set to continue.

The Red Devils spent over £150million in the Summer, but Van Gaal has already been told by chiefs at the club that he can spend more in January, with a holding-midfielder and defenders his priority.

It's believed Juventus will sell Vidal for around £40million, which is what United were prepared to offer during the Summer.
