It would appear that Manchester United will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that their entire squad is of world class quality.
With the winter window having drawn to a close, manager Jose Mourinho has already identified his first target once the market reopens in the summer.
As per Manchester Evening News, Arturo Vidal is the player targeted by Mourinho as the ideal replacement for Michael Carrick.
Despite what it might seem, the signing won’t be an extravagant one, as a dire need will soon arise amongst the Mancunian dressing room.
Apart from Carrick, who is poised to retire at the end of this season, the future of Marouane Fellaini is also uncertain, after the central midfielder refused to renew his contract. A similar plight might afflict afflict Spaniards Juan Mata and Ander Herrera too.
At 30 years of age, Vidal’s Bayern Munich spot might be in grave danger with the impending arrival of Leon Goretzka in the summer. With his contract due to end in 2019, a move to Old Trafford could be very much possible, and might even be entertained by the Bundesliga giants.
Despite having Pogba and Matic helming the heart of their play, the arrival of the former Juventus maestro could heavily aid their efforts, especially against big clubs.
Lastly, the chance to link up with fellow Chilean and United’s latest grab, Alexis Sanchez, could be the defining factor in favour of the Premier League giants.
