Arturo Vidal wants Juventus return?

November 11, 2016 - 10:27 am

Reports in Italy suggest Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal wants a return to Juventus next summer.

The former Bianconeri man left Turin in 2015, shortly after Juve’s defeat in the Champions League final against Barcelona, stating that he believed he stood a better chance of winning the trophy with Bayern Munich.

Italian transfer news website Calciomercato.it report Vidal is now open to a return to Juventus and has reportedly been discussing the situation with former teammate Patrice Evra.

The site goes on to suggest that Vidal is aiming to convince the two clubs to discuss a move next summer, however Juventus are reluctant to spend big on a player who turned his back on the club just 18 months ago.

    I have mixed filings about this possible deal. Even thou he is a traitor, he still is one of the best box-to-box midfielders and we could definitely still have use of him.

      He is not a traitor FFS.He wanted a new contract at Juve but Juve wanted to cash in and he requested that if that is the case he wd only move to a top CL side.He served his heart out for Juve for 4 years and was the best midfielder in last 5 years of Juve.

        I think you will find that is not correct. According to Juventus official twitter Marotta said Arturo asked to leave. Does that make him a traitor, make up your own mind.

          Marrota also said we wd not activate pjanic and higuain clause.Its a false statement for t fans so they can beleive that vidal asked to leave rather being sold.

            I don’t think you can say that spinning a story holds up for a player sale vs purchase.

            Look at what Beppe was saying all through the transfer windows for several seasons running prior to Vidal and Pogba leaving in the face of constant rumours and attempts by clubs to get them away from us: Juve do not need to sell, we only sell if a player wants to leave.

            Then look at what Vidal said to media upon joining BM…. Looks fairly clear who wanted out. The fact he has mentioned him with three players we know asked to leave and it looks an open and shut case Vidal wanted out as the club do not hold back from stating those players they are letting go – Caceres a recent case in point.

            Lool.Nevded said we cant reject utd offer and that kind of money for Pogba.Even Today Allegri Interview makes it clear he is not happy about Pogba sale.Lastly Vidal is the most Complete and clutch CM in the world.Selling him for only only 40 mil for peanuts clearly indicates how badly juve management and marrota wanted him out.

            Dude, official line as confirmed by Beppe is that he asked to leave. Everything else is rumour, make-believe and conspiracy theory crap. You can have your opinion, but that is all it is, your opinion. Unless anyone can bring evidence to the table contrary the only thing we have is the official line from the club and Vidal’s words which hint at his wanting the move.

            Pogba also wanted out. Nothing we could do, nothing to do with us not being able to turn down the transfer. Players who don’t want to play for us anymore are allowed to leave. End of story. We did not have to sell him, we had a contract with him for years. See the recent interview in the Financial Times, where Raiola tells that how he started work on that transfer with UTD in 2015. Juve knew nothing about it.

        @muhammadnajeebsyed:disqus @kps235:disqus Yes, a TRAITOR! “I’m very happy,” Vidal told Bayern’s official website. “This is a new step in my career and I hope I do well here. I want to help the team and win trophies. It’s a dream come true for me personally.” He’s living his “dream”. Whoever leaves the family that is Juventus is a traitor in mine eyes. The biggest legend of the club said; “A true gentleman never leaves his lady.” Vidal is no gentleman, as neither were Zidan, Thuram, Zambrotta, Cannavaro, Pogba. You decide to leave the family for money, you are a traitor in mine eyes. Do you think none wanted Alex, Pavel, Mauro or Gigi after calcopoli? Think again mine friend, even thou you will be playing in Serie B for a season. But they decided to stay with the club that means everything to them. True Juventini never leave the club for money, so yes, Vidal is no true Juventino and a traitor in mine eyes. Fuck him, we don’t need that alcoholic Chilean. You completely made me change mine mind regarding him. FORZA JUVE! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/cac68ab9249326878765ec9f8e20ec5310b5a4664f49b27cb1818475bcd8b979.jpg

    It’s complicated! while he is one of the bests in the middle of the park, he left us 18 month ago. But he is exactly what’s missing from this Juve team: A brutal dominant force who fights, scores and passes! I’d pick him half priced!

    Can’t say nothing bad about a player that played his heart out for the shirt. After 5 years he wanted to move but every minute he spent on the pitch was worth it. Personally I don’t think we need him as Arturo is turning 30 now. This Juventus team needs to get younger not older.

    This is like an ex girlfriend who wants to hook up with you again a year after you broke up with her. You think about it and you feel like it might be a good idea, but it usually isn’t. Vidal is a closed chapter for me. I enjoyed him while he was here, but I don’t see a need for him anymore. He hasn’t become better and aged and as we know, his knee is in bad shape.

    Love you still Arturo
