Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal will join Newcastle United for one particular manager

​Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal will reportedly join Newcastle United if the club appoints Massimiliano Allegri as the new manager according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Spanish publication claims that Newcastle have expressed their interest in signing Vidal in the summer transfer window.

However, the 32-year-old is adamant that he will only make the switch to St James' Park if his former manager at Juventus, Allegri takes over from current boss Steve Bruce.

Barcelona signed Vidal from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2018 for a fee that was valued at £27 million as per The Guardian.

The Chile international made 22 starts and 11 appearances off the bench in the 2018/19 season while scoring three goals and providing seven assists (WhoScored).

This season, on the other hand, Vidal scored six goals and provided three assists from 31 appearances across all competitions.
