Arturo Vidal with Juventus Squad

Manchester United target Arturo Vidal looks set to make his first appearance in pre-season for Juventus this evening.

Manchester United target Arturo Vidal is set to play his first pre-season match for Juventus tonight in the TIM Trophy.

The Chile international midfielder has been struggling with a knee injury since the 2014 World Cup and did not play a single minute on the Bianconeri’s pre-season tour of Asia and Australia this month.

However, Vidal, who has been strongly linked with a move to the Red Devils all summer, could feature tonight in the three-team tournament.

Ahead of the event, the former Bayer Leverkusen star has been posing for photos along with his teammates, one of which is below:

The Tim Trophy is a yearly pre-season friendly event which has three Italian teams play three round-robin 45-minute matches.

Sassuolo, who replaced Inter Milan in 2013, will compete for the honours against Italian giants Juventus and AC Milan.

If Vidal does come on, then he may not make a big impact as he would still be rusty. More importantly, the 27-year-old will want to make sure that he does not injure himself again.
