Long-term Manchester United Arturo Vidal has once again reiterated his stance that he does not want to leave Juventus, according to reports.
Italian source Tuttosport explains how the Chilean spoke before his side’s fixture last Sunday and confirmed that he was not looking for a summer departure, despite increasing speculation that he may jump ship for one of Europe’s big guns.
This time, it was Real Madrid who were the team in question, though the same subject has been banded about concerning United on numerous occasions. When asked about interest from the Spanish giants, which is steadily increasing as we creep closer to the summer transfer window, Vidal didn’t sit on the fence.
"I work every day at Juventus to give everything on the pitch. Even assuming that there is interest from Real, but I continue to work hard here and I hope to conquer all the goals,” the 26-year-old said.
Vidal only extended his contract with the current Serie A champions in December but that hasn’t quelled talk that this season could be his last in Turin.
Said to be valued at around €50million by Juve, it would take a substantial offer to convince his club to sell him, though it’s likely that both United and Madrid would be able to afford this figure from the money they are set to make with their respective player sales this summer.
