Arturo Vidal

Recommended Posts

if we can get him, it would be really superb. we have been missing a superior box-to-box player for quite some time now, he would fit in our squad nicely
however, i wouldn't get my hopes up. to bring him here would require either him being super loyal to conte or we cough up huge sum of money

"I have always said if I go to war I would take Conte with me. We will see what happens,” the Chilean midfielder told reporters.

Vidal only joined Bayern Munich in 2015, but he could be on his way out this summer following the departure of Pep Guardiola and implementation of Carlo Ancelotti as head coach for next season.

Conte few days ago:

 

And I would take Vidal [to war]. He's an amazing player... [At Juve] in my head I wanted to play with 4-2-4 and 4-4-2; seeing the intensity of Vidal up and down the pitch, I switched to 4-3-3 which is then transformed into a 3-5-2. He has extraordinary physical qualities and exceptional technical skills.  If I get to coach him a bit more, that would be fantastic. I want him on all my teams.

Rumors are resurfacing, 42m for Vidal.
I doubt Bayern will sell but apparently Vidal wants a new challenge and Conte is a massive fan. Vidal and Kante in midfield! 

Very good player. In fact the best defensive midfielder in the world. But after getting Kante am not sure we will be interested in bringing an older upgrade for Kante.

Oh god, they would run riot. 

     Hazard--- Costa---Sanchez

 Alonso---Kante---Vidal---Moses

Good luck dealing with that

B.S. Rumour. But he looks like a tough guy. Will work well with Costa.

If we're not getting him for like 20m, I'd pass. Isn't he almost 30? I doubt he produces anything beyond 31 or 32 especially considering the kind of game he plays. Would be a waste to shell out 40m+ for him imo.

Even 20mils is a waste...

Is he starting for Bayern right now?



To answer my own question. He's played in all their league games this season as far as I can see.

Doesn't look to injured. Doesn't look too out of form. Might only be a season or two but I'd not be averse at the right price.

Yes, he's a regular starter in Bayern. To be honest, there's no chance to see him here. Bayern won't sell him. Vidal-Thiago-Renato Sanchez this trio will offer so much to Bayern, Ancelotti won't risk.

True, but if we do manage to sign him then it will be wonderful as long as Vidal doesn't stay injured all the time. He seems very injury prone which is worrying. And in all fairness, he is only 29 and for a CM thats not too old

For a box-to-box destroyer, that's old. They exert a lot more energy and power into the game than your average CM.

According to some reports this is a done deal.

Don't know what to make of it really, am sitting on the fence with this one.

If we do sign though, looks like either Fabs or Matic will be on the way out.

Who?

Can't find any report to suggest that myself.

 

Likely just paper talk as usual, although being quite forthright that a meeting had been held and an agreement reached.

Am trying not to read too much into it, as so much sh*t is published by the rags, plus am not personally fond of our club spending that sort of money on players knocking on the door of 30 years.

He's quality and £38 million isn't too bad if true

It also helps that he's been coached under Conte (during his Juventus days) so he'd be very familiar with his techniques, tactics and man-management skills.

    • You may be right about that Mod. It was the Batshuayi comparison that felt bizarre. Good to see you posting.
    • STEVEN GERARD GERARD  HE FELL ON HIS f**kING ARSE HE GAVE IT TO DEMBA BA STEVEN GERARD GERARD
    • That's the thing though Davey, it's easy to forget about the player once they've moved on (or it went sour with the club) in which, I think most are doing with Costa. How many games did Costa step up when we needed him, and win the game like Morata vs Utd. I'm not taking shots at Morata, I like him and hope he becomes a striker that is up there every season for us, but for me, at the moment, he isn't as reliable or confident in front of goal as Costa was for us, not by some stretch. Yes I saw the same yesterday in the champions league 
    •   Bizarre. Costa started like a house on fire for us but I wonder if he had as many goals for us after as many games, remembering that Morata has missed a few with injury. Morata's been brilliant and I just can't understand your comparison with Batshuayi, who has no idea how to play up front on his own, although he will score goals. Batshuayi is just a very limited footballer and it's clear Conte doesn't trust him.   Morata is better in the air than Costa, by far, he's faster, his link-up play is better, he's more skilful, and he'll get more goals. He'll easily surpass Costa's 20 if he stays fit, because although he misses chances, he also puts them away, and crucially the chances keep coming his way, because his movement and positioning is so good. All strikers miss chances. Morata is scoring crucial goals, big goals in big games, winners, opening goals. Costa invariably went missing in big games. Lest we forget, in both our title winning seasons of late, Costa faded badly in the latter half, when the pressure was on. It was Hazard that drove us over the line on both occasions.   Given the choice, I don't see too many people taking Costa over Morata right now, and as for Batshuayi, he's at least one tier below them two in my opinion. I'm not saying there aren't better than Morata out there, but I don't think we could have done much better, given the options. He's been as good as any of us could have expected, and his goal against Utd was simply a great header. When we needed him he produced. He was absolutely brilliant that day.   He gets injured and we're relying on Batshuayi our season takes a very different course in my opinion.
    • Your right. After Argentina 78 World Cup. My mum worked in a sports shop and the real thing was 60£! Mitre Multiplex 2.5 was around 25-30£ I found one in a tree at the Bank of England sports club which was near Barnes I think in 1980. Fantastic ball, lasted for ages and all my mates loved using it. Heavier than lesser priced balls but helped build your leg power for long passing and shooting.
