Arturo Vidal has played down any chance of him joining Manchester United in the near future, insisting he's happy at Juventus, according to talkSPORT.

The Chilean international had been linked with a move to Manchester United and Bayern Munich, after a season of impressive performances for the Turin-based club.

The defending Serie 'A' champions signed the 25-year-old from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011, and he played a key role in last year's unbeaten title success.

Smooth passage to the Champions League quarter-finals, including several commanding displays at the heart of a talented three-man Juventus midfield, has led to speculation that a big-money summer bid could be forthcoming for the midfielder.

Juventus's Champions League quarter-final opponents Bayern Munich were reportedly keen, while Manchester United have been long-term admirers.

But Vidal insists he's committed to Juventus, and has no intention of leaving anytime soon.

Speaking to Tuttosport, Vidal said: "I can promise the fans that I'm staying, 100 per cent. I intend to remain here - I have a contract here for the next three and a half years."

The Santiago-born midfielder, along with Andrea Pirlo and Claudio Marchisio , forms one part of an imposing three-man midfield. And Juventus have serious ambitions of a first Champions League trophy since 2003.

The Serie 'A' league leaders face Bayern Munich, conquerers of Arsenal in the last-16, while Manchester United were knocked out by Real Madrid at the same stage.

Sir Alex Ferguson has been linked with a number of centre-midfielders in recent seasons, but he's yet to strengthen the position.
