Yesterday it was off; today it is, supposedly, back on but with ramifications!

The consensus of opinion yesterday was that Manchester United were set to look elsewhere with the view that they were not prepared to meet the asking price for the Juventus player Arturo Vidal.

Today the inference is that things have gone round a full circle with the inference that Louis Van Gaal has persuaded the United board to pursue the player.

Now it would appear that a deal is to be done and the Chilean midfielder could very well be coming to Old Trafford.

However, with Juventus set to lose one of their star players it appears that their head coach Antonio Conte has had enough of his best players being sold from beneath his feet and has left his position, remarking to the Italian media,

“I have decided to terminate my contract.”

“My feelings led me to make this choice. It may be more difficult to keep winning with Juventus.”


Clearly enough is enough for Conte but then again every cloud, particularly for us, has a silver lining!
