Manchester United & Manchester City target wants to stay in Italy

Manchester United and Manchester City target Arturo Vidal has dismissed rumours that he will be leaving Juventus this summer, reports Sky Sports.

The 25-year-old midfielder has been heavily linked with a move away from Turin in recent months, with a number of top European clubs said to be keen on his services, including Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest in bringing the Chile international to Old Trafford when the transfer window reopens again this summer.

However, Manchester United will face competition for his signature from local rivals Manchester City, as Roberto Mancini also continues to monitor Vidal's situation in Italy.

Vidal has been an integral part of Antonio Conte's side, ever since he signed for Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011. Having played a key role in the Serie 'A' title success last season, the South American star has continued to impress again this term.

And, with the Bianconeri set to retain the Scudetto again this year - they're currently 11 points clear at the top of the table with five games remaining - Vidal has made clear his intentions to stay.

"I am very calm about my future and I am fine at Juventus, I feel comfortable," he said. "I want to stay where I am because I am proud to wear this shirt.

"I don't have any doubts. I want to continue my adventure at Juventus and give my best to this team."
