Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal, a reported transfer target for Manchester United this summer, claims to be 'calm' despite speculation about his future, and has no desire to leave Turin at the end of the season.

According to talkSPORT, the 25-year-old Chilean is wanted by Manchester United as the Premier League leaders look to reinforce their midfield, but Vidal is content with life as a Juventus player. 

"I'm calm about my future," he said, as reported by talkSPORT. "I'm happy here, I'm proud to wear this shirt and I want to continue like this."

Should Manchester United decide to formalise their apparent interest in Vidal, then the Red Devils would reportedly have to lodge an offer in the region of €40 million for Juventus even to entertain the idea of selling the Chile international.

The acquisition of midfield reinforcements is likely to be a priority for Sir Alex Ferguson come the summer transfer window, and Manchester United are already reported to have made an approach for Nemanja Matic of Benfica.

Matic joined Benfica as part of the deal that saw David Luiz sign for Chelsea in the January transfer window of 2011, and the Serbia international has flourished during his time in Lisbon.

The 25-year-old could join Manchester United as a successor to Paul Scholes, who is seemingly likely to lower the curtain on his Old Trafford career for the second time at the end of the season.
