Arturo Vidal was dropped by Juventus for their crucial Serie A win over title rivals Roma yesterday after he was spotted out on the town at 5am on Friday, before reporting late for training the next day it has been claimed.

The Chilean has been a key part of Juventus' team in recent seasons, helping them claim three consecutive Italian league titles.


His rise to prominence as one of the most dominant midfielders in Europe helped attract the interest of Manchester United over the summer, and it was claimed that they were looking to complete a huge deal worth around £47 million as they looked to re-establish themselves as a major force in Europe.

However the deal never came off - and reports suggested it was because Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal pulled the plug because he had reservations about his knee - Vidal underwent surgery last year and was unable to complete 90 minutes at the World Cup - while the figures involved were believed to be too high.

Night out

Now it seems as though the Manchester United boss has been proved right. Vidal was dropped from Juve's must-win game against Roma last night after he was photographed outside a nightclub in the early hours of Friday morning.

Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport also add that he turned up late for training - which prompted Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri to drop him for the game against Roma. He is also likely to be handed a sizeable fine and warned about his future conduct.


The Turin-based club did just fine without their inspirational leader, pulling off a comeback 3-2 win in controversial circumstances. Three questionable penalties were awarded along with two red cards. Ultimately it was Juventus who had the final say thanks to a stunning volley from defender Leonardo Bonucci with four minutes to go.

For Manchester United, they are likely to switch targets ahead of the January transfer window - with Roma's Kevin Strootman the man for the job. The Dutch ace is on his way back from a serious injury which ruled him out of the World Cup - and he could be targeted by Van Gaal over Vidal.
