    Would break the bank for Vidal, just splash £40m on their table. £150k pw for him. Do it Wenger.

    Also, does anyone else here see Ozil doing very well in a false 9 role? With two WF's (Walcott, Sanchez). I see that as a great position for him, finding the space like a Muller (except without the finishing), drawing defenders out of position, and delivering the killer assists. Playing him further up the field imo will mean that losing the ball is not as dangerous and also gives him more freedom to move around as he sees fit.

    I don't think 4-2-3-1 is necessary for us if we get a new CM with a good engine and technique. Could play 4-3-3 with Flamini and the new central midfielder (their ability to cover ground quickly will be enough imo) sitting, and then Ramsey slightly ahead of them but also able to track back and cover. This is why, tactically, a new CM is vital. It would gives us a lot more flexibility on how we play in midfield.

    If you sign Vidal and don't win the title it would be a big disappointment personally.

    If you used 4-3-3 yes. 4-2-3-1 with Ozil false 9 won't work. You need a top quality DM though. Wilshere/AOC, Ramsey and DM should do well enough with a false 9.

    Flamini is a player who works hard but I don't think he's that good. Filled in a gap the previous season and that's it. Wilshere would probably appreciate the extra space to dribble into in the 4-3-3 as well.

    Cavani is certainly not worth 54M or whatever PSG want for him. Although interestingly enough, it does seem that he is on his way out. I cannot see him at Arsenal though.

    HIghly, highly disagree that Vidal has outgrown Juve.

    Their midfield contains Pirlo and Pogba, as well as Marchisio. He's the second best player in their midfield and is replaceable, their CB's are as good as anybody's. They've got two high quality strikers in Tevez and Llorente. Asamoah is a good player, nothing spectacular but he's got energy in abundance and can whip in a decent ball, Lichsteiner the same.

    It's a pretty good team, albeit slightly unspectacular and lacking in depth outside the first 11 in midfield. Probably in the top 8 of europe currently. Going to Arsenal or United would be a downgrade for a player of his ability. Although you could say he improves the team to an extent that it won't be(Arsenal in particular). I'd go as far to say that Vidal is the third most important player in the team, behind Pirlo and Tevez.

    Only reason that he's potentially leaving is because Juve want to balance the books. Also is he actually leaving or is this just the general nonsense that people put on to sell papers(as Conte left Juve)
    I don't even watch Juve so I can't go off how he plays to say he's outgrown the club, but the attitude of Vidal and the way it's being treated as if he's outgrown the club. All the way through the wc and summer Vidal has been surrounded by rumours of leaving. Unless he said something explicitly to encourage this, I think it's how it's seen. Based on playing wise you are right, he hasn't outgrown them. Juventus are a top club after all.

    A player like Pirlo is too old to outgrow juve, Pogba has settled and can't yet outgrow the club, Marchisio wouldn't ever leave the club, Llorente and Tevez are probably playing for their last major teams.

    I've never really understood how Juve have kept a hold of quality players. How old is Chiellini now?

    Really no idea. I had the thought we may have agreed teems with Vidal but were still negotiating a fee, but that's probably *******s. Sadly

    Would you say Vidal is definitely going to leave this season?

    They won the CL so mitigating circumstances, had the CL finalists come first in the league and only missed second place on head to head.

    No comparison to the situation at Arsenal. If you sign Vidal you should be looking to win the league next season no excuses.

    Well when you remember that Chelsea have won 1 title in the last 9 years, it's not as simple as spending big money on players is it?

    Even if we had Vidal, City would have the stronger squad overall, their firepower put's ours to shame.

    What as opposed to him against Torino and Lazio? Obviously he ripped up Serie A but you cant blame people for not being impressed in the handful of big CL/Uruguay matches they've seen him in.

    Saying that, I would take Cavani if he were available , worth taking the risk given the potential upside if he took off.
