Arturo Vidal

One of Chile’s main man and a steady member of Juventus’ starting XI, Arturo Vidal is said to leave the Serie A champion’s camp this summer. According to reports, the renowned midfielder is set to make a name within the premises of Old Trafford.


Just recently, Vidal refused to give a clear picture of his future at Juventus. When asked about his impending transfer, he neither denied nor confirmed any of the stories linking him to Manchester United. Instead, he stressed that his focus is currently directed on helping the Chilean national football team advance into the latter stage of the tournament.


Vidal has been a target of Manchester United. Its former manager, David Moyes has long been an admirer of the Chilean superstar and dreams of including him in his team. However, it seems that Moyes share the same sentiment with the club’s upcoming manager, Louis van Gaal as the latter is also eager to secure his signature.


Didier Drogba

Didier Drogba is expected to join Juventus this summer. The 36-year-old striker’s contract with the Turkish squad, Galatasaray is about to expire on the 30th of June. Yet, the poacher said that he already has a new club to join even before World Cup ends. Apparently, the club he refers to is Juventus.


Nigel de Jong

Stories sparked interest that Nigel de Jong might leave AC Milan soon. The footballer was a vocal supporter of Clarence Seedorf, who was sacked for failing to guide the Rossoneris in qualifying for the Europa League.


Seedorf’s sacking may have triggered de Jong’s motives to leave. At any rate, his manager in the Netherland’s national squad, van Gaal is more than willing to welcome him in Old Trafford.
