Vidal in, Fabregas out: Could this be Conte’s dream Chelsea midfield in 2017?
CM – Arturo Vidal
Arturo Vidal is, in many ways, the complete midfielder.
He can pass, he can tackle, he can defend, he can attack – he can do it all.
The Chilean is best utilised as one man in a three-man midfield, as he likely will be should he join Chelsea, and he is the perfect man to contrast N’Golo Kante, who would play just behind him.
Expect him to dribble forward whilst also spraying balls to Diego Costa ahead of him. Surrounded by defensive stability, Vidal’s defensive responsibilities would be reduced, allowing him to focus more on the attacking side of the game.
