According to the latest reports, Manchester United are looking to add more steel to their side with the inclusion of Arturo Vidal. The Barcelona midfielder has not seen much of the action this season so far and has reportedly been left frustrated by the lack of game time at Nou Camp.

Vidal joined the reigning La Liga champions from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in 2018. He has been used more as a backup to players like Frenkie De Jong and Arthur. Both, he and Ivan Rakitic have been the two midfielders, who have evidently fallen from their prime.

That has been under the tutelage of Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde. He might be looking to make a move out of the Catalan club. That is with the January transfer window just around the corner.

The Story About The Transfer Of This Former Barcelona Star Wanted By Manchester United

As per the report, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has a very good relationship with Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich. This might come as an added advantage for the Red Devils. They look ready to make a bid for the Chilean midfield maestro. The English giants are keen to add more quality to their squad.

However, it is to be seen whether Barcelona are willing to let go of the midfielder in the January transfer window. Or whether the Red Devils have to wait till the summer for the move to be materialised.

United are having a very tough time in the Premier League this season and are currently stranded at the 11th position in the league table. With injuries to key players like Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay, it has been a disastrous condition in the middle of the pitch for the Red Devils. Also, the fact that they have not been able to replace the likes of Marouane Fellaini and Ander Herrera has also come back to haunt them this season so far.

What Next For The Upcoming Season With Regards To These Two European Giants?

The addition of a quality player like Vidal will no doubt help the Manchester United side to stabilise their midfield, which has looked very brittle in the absence of the top-class players. Under fire manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would be able to make good use of the veteran midfielder. They played a crucial role in the Barcelona lineup the last term. They went on to lift the La Liga trophy.

With the likes of Nemanja Matic and Fred not been able to step up in the shoes of Paul Pogba and Scott McTominay so far this season,  there is a possibility that the Serbian might be on his way out of the club. He could be gone as well in January. The situation being this, the probable addition of Arturo Vidal could be a very crucial and sensible move. It could help the current boss on his journey. It could be smart on the part of the Red Devils.

The Chilean himself would be happy to make a move to the Premier League giants. That was after what has been a lacklustre season so far for him in terms of playing time. So it is expected to be a win-win situation for both Manchester United and Vidal.

Now, it is to be seen whether the club and the player come in agreement to the terms. Let’s see whether the former Serie A and Bundesliga winner could become a key player in the midfield for the former Premier League champions or not. Barcelona will have to say yes too, which will be a task in itself. The Manchester-based side will be hoping that they can convince them. Let’s wait and watch now!!
