Arturo Vidal of Bayern Munich has been a powerhouse for the Bavarians. The midfield dynamo from Chile is a mainstay in the middle of the park for them and has a playing style that makes him an ideal modern day midfielder. He is smart on the ball and has a peripheral range of distribution. However, what makes him a world class midfielder is the fact that he is an absolute nightmare to deal with when off the ball. He can cover every blade of grass on a weekly basis and has a knack for the outrageous shots from outside the box.
The Chilean is now being linked with a move to England with Manchester United ready to bring in the midfield dynamo. With Vidal’s current contract running out in 2019 and the player turning 31 next year, it was reported earlier this year that the Bavarians could be ready to cash in on their star player. Moreover, they have signed Leon Goretzka and this will definitely see him fall down the pecking order at Bayern.
As for United, a player with an engine to run for 90 minutes he would certainly shape the Red Devils midfield better. Although United have been linked with him, the arrival of Nemanja Matic in the summer will mean that he will not be a top priority for Jose Mourinho. However, Vidal’s ability to tackle, pass and bully complimented with Matic’s experience of knowing when to sit back and when to push forward would make their pairing invaluable.
Currently, the Red Devils have Matic, Marouane Fellaini, Ander Herrera and their French ace Paul Pogba in midfield. It will be difficult for Mourinho to adjust another midfielder into the side. United also have makeshift cover at the middle of the park in the form of Daley Blind and Phil Jones as well. Although his move to Manchester United will allow United fans to see a midfield base with the defensive wall of Matic sitting behind the dynamo of Vidal and the explosive boom of Pogba.
Vidal would provide both sets of qualities in terms of finesse and robustness and having him in the team would mean that Pogba would be freed of his defensive duties completely and the Frenchman can then focus on feeding impeccable balls to his frontmen while scoring a few himself. Whatever happens, we have to wait until summer now to see anything happen.
