According to Lazy fan insider, Mourinho is a big fan in Arturo Vidal but age and injury concerns will probably have killed any previous interest. The combative midfielder is now 31. In the last three season in Munich, he has played on average 26 out of 34 league games. According to Transfermarkt Arturo has only had one long-term injury since his move to Bayern. But that was a knee injury in April this year. It is always a big question mark about if a player in their thirties can fully recover from knee injury.
Arturo Vidal was not selected to go on Bayern Munich’s US preseason tour. The four-time Seria A champion and three-time bundles Liga champion was not on the tour due to still recovering from a knee injury in April. This will be last preseason under his current deal as the contract expires at the end of the season. If Munich would like to cash in on the player this window could be their last chance.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge (Bayern CEO) has stated in an interview with Calciomercato “It’s up to him to decide his own future, he still has a contract year with us, but if he wants to sign a longer agreement elsewhere, he will have to move in first. we will not be able to do anything about it, and if it presents something to us, we will evaluate it “
Key Selling Point of Arturo Vidal
A key factor that could lead to Arturo to Manchester is that he can join up with his international team-mate Alexis Sanches. Both of them together have won two Coppa Americas. Before Alexis transfer to United Arturo was encouraging him to join him in Germany. “I know him very well. He is a spectacular player. And with him, we would surely improve.” Worth noting that Alexis and Arturo both have the same agent. Moving Arturo Vidal to Manchester could help settle Alexis and get the most out of the Chilian attacker.
Inter are looking to make an offer for Vidal. At the time of writing the odds are evens that Vidal will be Inter player in September. He knows the country well after spending four years at Juventus. Arturo was selected twice for Seria A team of the year in that time. But looking at his previous selection of teams he has chosen to be involved with teams that win honors. Having won seven straight league titles. Inter’s last honor was winning Coppa Italia in 2011.
