New Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri has played down reports that Arturo Vidal is on his way out of the Turin club, stating the Chilean is happy at Juventus.
It's been a transfer rumour on the tip of every Manchester United fans tongue in recent weeks, with various news outlets stating Van Gaal is willing to smash the Manchester United record transfer free to bring in Vidal.
Despite reports, Allegri has come out to deny any rumours regarding his midfielder future.
Allegri spoke to Juventus' official website: "Vidal is fundamental for Juventus and not just in practical terms.
"He is very motivated and he is happy to stay."
The experienced Italian manager has had several meetings with Vidal regarding the players fitness and current state of mind.
Vidal was forced to undergo a knee cartridge operation towards the end of the 2013/14 season, after suffering a tear to the external meniscus.
Question marks were made over Vidal's speedy recovery, in time for the World Cup, and many people questioned whether or not he was fully fit to represent Chile, who were later knocked out by Brazil in the last 16.
"I spoke to him to satisfy myself of his physical condition as he was operated on and then played a World Cup, so he will train on a special schedule for a few days," Allegri added.
Despite what Allegri has said, Juventus have this week signed midfield cover in the name of Robert Pererya from Udinese, the signing could possibly have been made to cushion the blow of either Vidal or Pogba leaving the Italian club.
