Long-term Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has once again reiterated his stance that he will not be moving clubs this summer, despite the fact that he continues to be coveted by a host of European giants.
Both Real Madrid and United have spent the better part of the season plotting ways they can draw the Chilean international away from Turin, despite the fact that he’s continually stated that he is happy there. And if signing a new contract with Juventus at the back end of last year which will run until 2017 wasn’t enough to ward off suitors, Vidal himself recently made a point of rejecting the idea that he would be moving on after the culmination of the current campaign.
According to Italian publication TuttoMercato, Vidal told FourFourTwo: "I've said many times, in Turin are happy and my family is well, I have no reason to listen to the [transfer] sirens of which you speak."
Such words do not install confidence that David Moyes can lure the playmaker to the Premier League, nor do they so much as hint that a previously mooted €50million sum would be enough to secure a transfer. Though the saga may continue to twist and turn as we approach the opening of the summer market, it looks a safe bet that Antonio Conte will be keeping hold of his prized asset for at least one more season.
