Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, linked with Manchester United and a number of others of Europe’s elite, would be more suited to Real Madrid then Barcelona, according to compatriot and former La Liga forward Pato Yañez.

Vidal is one of the most coveted players on the continent given his continual excellent performances for Juventus, with the Chilean having scored 11 times from midfield in Serie A this season, and he is expected to be the subject of interest in the summer.

Real Madrid are reported to have identified Vidal as a priority acquisition, with Los Blancos planning a €60 million bid, while Barcelona have also been credited with interest of their own in the 26-year-old.

Yañez, who played Real Valladolid, Zaragoza and Betis, though believes that Vidal is a player whose attributes would fit in more readily at the Santiago Bernabeu than they would at the Camp Nou.

“[Vidal is] more at Real Madrid than at Barcelona. He is better suited to Los Blancos' style of play than to Barça’s,” Yañez told Esports in Xarxa.

"It's difficult for me to imagine Arturo Vidal in Barça's system, but he is a great player. He's a different sort of player to Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta. I think it would take him some time to adapt to Barça's game."

Manchester United, meanwhile, are also reported to be watching Vidal with manager David Moyes supposed to have sanctioned a move in January as he strived to bring reinforcements to Old Trafford.
