Arturo Vidal - Moving to Man Utd?

Recommended Posts

Fuels the fire on the links of Vecino going to Chelsea.

However, a midfield shield of Vecino, Nainggolan and Vidal would be so good for Inter.

Barcelona is going strong after Arturo Vidal, according to the latest rumours. 

Italian clubs should be afraid of even buying paper for their offices those days, cause Barça may outbid them. 😁

I hope it’s extremely cheap because that’s a dodgy signing.

Too much although I understand that these days it isn’t seen as such.

According to Spanish sports daily SPORT Arturo Vidal to Barcelona is a done deal!

Should be announced very soon and the apparent reason for the signing from what's being said is that the player Barça wanted was the young Ajax midfielder, Frenkie de Jong.  Ajax have told Barça that under no circumstances will he be leaving this season so that's been left until next summer.

I love Vidal's game and his attitude/approach to playing. Tons of effort each game, capable on the ball, good tackler. Confident he'll do well in the Barca team.

Midfield trio of Busquets, Rakitic, Vidal is very strong.

It is in the Dutch press now, That Barcelona will sign Frenkie de Jong but arriving next season,   Vidal will come and be  the stop gap in the meantime.

Barcelona have been thinking about various options to reinforce the midfield. The priority was Rabiot but the option of Arturo Vidal was attractive when thinking about the future. Because the Chilean, a signing who will perform immediately, will serve as a bridge to the arrial of Frenkie De Jong.

The idea is to arrange De Jong's arrival for next summer to complete the midfield for the seasons ahead. At Barcelona they are convinced that De Jong will wear the club's colours sooner or later. And they have the situation of the player under control - he is receiving offers but only wants to go to Barcelona.

They will not try and force Ajax into selling this summer and instead will create a friendly deal for everyone. Ajax are open to negotiate and agreeing a move for next summer, which would give the player one more year in Amsterdam.

Thats why he is Rey Vidal, a true leader among men. It's a shame that he chose to go down that route. Alena and Sergio Roberto are being ignored to the full extent, rafinha asking for his brother return when he won't even make it. Never thought the masia kids would be treated this way.. can you imagine the pride filled Catalonian newspapers and a section each week for the new foreign Barcelona is splashing it's money on? I wonder what would Cruyff say about this current approach? xD

this is why we can't have level-headed discussions, sadly. It's too anti-Barca, bringing in agendas like this ruins conversations 😑:what:

Don't be surprised if he gets drunk and accidentally runs over Messi.

Not too bad there in my opinion. There are valid criticisms in there towards what happened to Barca and their youth academy although admittedly we are hearing it twice a week at the moment xD.

The problem is that he repeats the same thing everytime there’s a new signing.

Barca are going to piss the league 

They absolutely should, on paper. Madrid have weakened themselves with the Ronaldo sale. That’s a lot of goals from last season that’ll need to be scored by others. They were counting on Bale staying fit, and now he’s injured.

Meanwhile Barca have seriously improved their midfield & brought in Malcom to replace Dembele and I think he’ll be better than Dembele in terms of consistency (even though I think Dembele has the potential to be world class).

even more so if Modric goes.

So you rather me stay quiet? This is as bad as when Barcelona & Rosell & Qatar were working together.. you claim that cules and socios raising hell helped due away with the Qatar ties, why not raise hell about la masia being ignored? I know, cause it's not convenient! You and the rest of the cules rather see Barcelona become the new Real Madrid, as long as it comes with trophies

not at all xD. just doesn't have to be mentioned everywhere you go

Just goes to show that Barca are willing to let go of their morals and ideology just to compete. Iniestas, Xavis, Messis, Pedros, and Busquets don't grow on trees.

Vidal was one of our best players last season but he has one year on his contract and he is not going to age well. Bringing Sanches back from loan and signing Goretzka the midfield was crowded. Im fine with it on the one hand but on the other we keep signing Robbery to new contracts so I dont know how to feel. Im more concerned with selling Boateng and not signing a replacement though.

No mate... I’ve agreed with you and even on a thread with Barça’s last signing (Malcom I think) I wrote a piece with agreement. But people can’t just keep on repeating the same thing to the same thing. Debates have to move on...

Hes officially signed with Barca for €30m. Apparently the Inter deal fell through because of the loan first option and money, Barca where prepared to pay him more. He signs a 3 year deal with Barca.

What a signing. Busquets and Vidal should dominate against anyone.

Valverde seems to be over the moon with this arrival after listening to him in a press conference.  Without a doubt this is his signing it seems.

Very weird signing. Great business for Bayern though as they clearly have no use for him anymore.

For the past few years I always felt Bayern was a better team when Vidal was not playing.

I also thought it was a weird signing before I found out that it was a stop gap fix after Paulinho departed back to China and that Ajax weren’t going to release De Jong before next summer. Under that scenario it’s a good signing. Although Barça have had to give in to a 3 year deal which isn’t good.
