Gazzetta dello Sport: It’s possible Man United increased bid for Arturo Vidal, causing Conte to leave Juventus
When it comes to football news from Italy, pink newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport are pretty much the gold standard.
So, a report this evening in the aftermath of Antonio Conte’s surprise departure from Juventus will be eagerly lapped up by Manchester United fans.
In one of Gazzetta’s main reports on Conte leaving The Old Lady they seriously speculate that have Manchester United increased their bid for Chile World Cup star Arturo Vidal.
Reportedly, Conte was not happy that Juventus have been priced out the market for both Juan Cuadrado and Alexis Sanchez.
The three-time Scudetto winner also had doubts about bringing in Manchester United left back Patrice Evra, a move that has been verified by press in both Italy and England.
They go on to add that it is “possible that the straw that broke the camel’s back was Arturo Vidal. Juventus had promised Conte that Vidal would not be sold. But Manchester United, fresh from a huge agreement with Adidas, in the last hours have raised the offer.”
This news should come with a huge caveat – namely two of the most connected journalists to Manchester United, who reveal that Louis van Gaal’s side have in fact made no move for Arturo Vidal. See Tweets below.
