Reports in Spain: United passed on the opportunity to sign Arturo Vidal
• The Chilean was reportedly offered to United last month
• Jose Mourinho opted against signing the ex-Bayern Munich man
Following Vidal's surprising transfer to La Liga giants Barcelona, Spanish journalist Jose Alvarez has claimed that Bayern first offered the 31-year-old to United and Manchester City.
Arturo Vidal was offered one month ago to Manchester City and Manchester United by his agents but both clubs discard the signement. His age and his knee (two surgeries) were the reason of the refuse even the price was reasonable. @elchiringuitotv— Jose Alvarez Haya (@10JoseAlvarez) August 4, 2018
United eventually decided against signing the Chilean, due to his age and injury history.
