Another Premier League club also wants to sign him
Manchester United are looking to bolster their squad in the transfer window after an underwhelming campaign last season, not winning a single silverware. They finished second in the Premier League, 19 points behind Manchester City.
Jose Mourinho prioritized the signing of a holding midfielder this summer and has completed the signing of Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk for a reported fee of £52.5 million. Marouane Fellaini has also signed a contract extension until 2020 after he was heavily linked with a summer exit.
But the Red Devils have been chasing another midfielder after missing out on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic. And one of their long time targets Arturo Vidal could be available in this transfer window.
The Chile International joined Bayern Munich from Juventus on a four-year deal for a fee of €37 million plus up to €3 million in bonuses. He has been a mainstay in the midfield since then and has been one of the key players in their domestic dominance over the past seasons.
The 31 year old featured regularly for the the German side last season, scoring 6 goals and assisting 2 in 35 appearances in all competitions despite being injured for some period and even faced competition in the Starting XI.
But the Bundesliga giants have put the midfielder on the transfer market for 30 million euros. They have decided to sell him for three seasons: continuous injuries suffered that have not let him play regularly, secondly his age (31), and thirdly they have signed Goretzka and are well covered in central midfield.
The Chilean’s value has dropped over the past year but the club wants to sell him before his value goes down further below. But Mourinho’s side could face competition from another Premier League club.
Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in signing Arturo Vidal according to Bild as quoted by Sky Sports.
