Manchester United receive blow in race for Chilean star

Published Add your comment

Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has pledged his future to Juventus, and dismissed talk he is headed to the Premier League, according to talkSPORT.

The Chilean star has been strongly linked with the likes of United and Spanish giants Real Madrid, but has insisted he is happy to remain at the Italian champions for the foreseeable future.

Vidal's form has been eye-catching since his switch from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011, and is largely credited as having played a significant role in Juventus' last two title-winning seasons.

There has been speculation linking the 26-year-old with a move to either United or Madrid in January, particularly when it's considered that David Moyes will have up to £80million to spend to enhance his squad's chances at retaining the title, however he was quick to rule out a departure from Serie A, and affirmed he was not thinking about moving clubs just yet.

"I feel very comfortable at Juventus," he said.

"The people want me here and treat me very well.

"Juventus have won two titles in a row and we hope to continue like this. I am 26 now and have many more years here.

"I hope to win a third title with Juventus."

Moyes is said to eyeing up Leighton Baines, Ander Herrera and Eliaquim Mangala as potential January additions, but the news of Vidal's dismissal at being linked with United will no doubt come as a disappointment.
