Man Utd Eyeing £13m January Swoop For La Liga Midfielder

Three-time European champions Manchester United are said to be eyeing a January transfer for unsettled Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal.

This is according to the publication from the stables of FCInter News which revealed that Manchester United are one of the favourites to sign Vidal if the Chilean decides to leave Barcelona during the upcoming January transfer market.

Arturo Vidal has been left frustrated with his playing time at Barcelona under manager Ernesto Valverde.

The Chilean international joined Barcelona from German champions Bayern Munich at the start of the last campaign and was part of the team that won the Spanish La Liga title for the second season in a row.

Earlier this season, Arturo Vidal said that he’ll weigh up his situation at Barcelona if he doesn’t play regularly.

Vidal has started just three league games this season though he has been able to make 10 appearances including seven substitute appearances.

The former Juventus and Bayern Munich player made his 10th league appearance of the season during the slim win over Atletico Madrid on Sunday.

He came on as a second-half substitute for Brazilian international Arthur Melo as Barcelona beat hosts Atletico Madrid 1-0 courtesy an 86th minute Lionel Messi strike to return to the Spanish La Liga summit.

Manchester United will have to spend £13m to sign him during the January window according to the above mentioned publication.
