Manchester United have not been afraid to splash the cash this summer in a bid to rectify their poor form last season, but it appears even they have a limit. The Mirror has reported Man Utd have rejected the chance to sign Arturo Vidal for £35 million and are looking to haggle the price down with Juventus.
Vidal stands as one of Juventus' most important and best players; the Chilean also had an impressive World Cup. With Juventus having won Serie A three times in a row, and with them having Champions League football, as opposed to Man Utd who won't be Europe, one could be forgiven in wondering why Vidal would want to leave the club or why Juventus would even entertain selling an important asset.
It is because Juventus need to balance their books and Vidal represents a massive opportunity to do so. Man Utd understand this and are will to prey on their need and nab Vidal for a cheaper price.
With Manchester United interested in many other players, such as the £50 million rated Angel Di Maria and Borussia Dortmund's Mats Hummels, the Red Devils will be keen to save money where possible.
