Man United are continuously being linked to a host of midfielders to join them in the summer.
With Michael Carrick retiring and Marouane Fellaini likely to depart, manager Jose Mourinho is said to be in the market searching for a key midfielder.
With several names doing the rounds, the latest player to join the list is Bayern Munich’s Arturo Vidal, and United fans have not quite liked the idea of seeing him in the club.
The Chilean was a target for United a couple of years ago, but the former Juventus player snubbed them before making a move to the Bavarian giants.

According to reports, United are seeking the player, and want him to move to Old Trafford. They are also willing to pay a substantial amount in the region of £40m to Bayern, besides a lucrative salary to the player.
Jose could also persuade Alexis Sanchez in talking his national teammate to switch ranks.
However, this move has got some United fans upset, as they believe the player is past his prime.
Vidal, who is set to turn 31 soon, has had his best years at Juve and Bayern. Fans, therefore, are quite perplexed on whether the player will be at his best at United. The supporters clearly want younger faces, who could be at the club for many years to come.
Here are some of the fans’ reactions to this report on Twitter:
This short term thing he has going on needs to stop. Yeah Vidal is world class but we don’t need players who only have 3yrs max left of their careers https://t.co/C1qPyoGdoG

Why do we always have to go for players who are past it. Should have gone for Vidal years ago. Should be looking at someone for the long term.

Vidal would be a fantastic signing! Just fear at 31 it's another Schweinsteiger. A top player coming to us 4 years too late
