Video: Man United target Arturo Vidal provides Juventus assist in draw

Arturo Vidal

The Chile international showcased a sumptuous piece of skill to set up Carlos Tevez to score in the clash with Inter last night.

After the mid-season break, Serie A action has returned; the clash of the round was champions Juventus hosting Inter Milan last night.

The Serie A frontrunners were held in a 1-1 draw in Turin, with Mauro Icardi cancelling out Carlos Tevez’s early opener.

The home side’s goal was put on a plate for the Argentine striker by Arturo Vidal, with the Chilean midfielder showing an exemplary piece of skill and perfect delivery for Tevez to slot home, as can be seen below.

The former Bayer Leverkusen enforcer has constantly been linked with a move to Manchester United and this superlative piece of play will only add to the evidence that the Old Trafford club should prioritise bringing the South American to England.

Vidal’s form has been questioned in Italy this term but at his best he must be adjudged as one of the most rounded midfielders in world football.

Although he is renowned for his combative approach and work rate, his assist last night also shows that his technique and footballing ability should not be overlooked either.

Although Roma’s Kevin Strootman is widely acknowledged as being Louis van Gaal’s preference in adding quality to United’s midfield options, summer target Vidal would surely be an excellent addition for the 20-times champions.
