Manchester United transfer target Arturo Vidal has been warned that he must change his attitude after a €100,000 fine for partying.

The Juventus midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United since June, was fined six figures after partying until 5am in the days before a match.

The Chilean international, who is valued at £45m, reportedly got involved in an incident outside a nightclub, and was then dropped by Juve boss Massimo Allegri for Juventus’s game against Roma.

While Allegri insists the decision to leave Vidal out of the starting lineup was tactical, the manager admitted that Vidal must change his attitude if he wants to get back in the team.

Roma omission

As reported by the Daily Express, Allegri said: “Vidal’s omission against Roma was a technical choice. He’s played a lot of games and I had Pirlo.

“What happened off the pitch has nothing to do with it, that’s a problem for the club. Now, however, he must have a different attitude.”

The report goes on to claim that Allegri’s quotes may have handed United boss Louis van Gaal a boost in his efforts to sign the midfielder.

Interest in Mata

In fact, United may look to use Juve’s interest in playmaker Juan Mata to force a breakthrough in negotiations. United and Juve have failed to agree a fee for Vidal so far in talks, but Juve want Mata which could play into Van Gaal’s hands.

United reportedly value Mata at £23.5m, which means they may be able to offer a cash plus player deal for Vidal in the January transfer window.
