Manchester United, Chelsea and Liverpool target Arturo Vidal, has revealed that he is happy to stay at Juventus, despite the interest shown in him from the Premier League trio.
The Chilean international has been dominating papers this Summer and is one of the hottest transfer rumours so far, with Louis Van Gaal's United favourites to sign the 27-year-old, but he has dealt all interested teams a blow by confirming that he is happy to stay in Italy.
Vidal, who joined the club two years ago, has had a successful career at Juve, helping them win the last two Serie A titles, but it was reported that he could end his stay this year with three English giants all interested in him.
Despite Chelsea and Liverpool reportedly interested in signing Vidal, it has only been United that have made formal offers for the holding-midfielder, but it's believed that all three have not been good enough to tempt Juventus into selling.
It's believed that United offered £37million, £42.5m and then £47.7m for the Chilean, but they were all snubbed by Juve, who are keen to keep both Vidal and Paul Pogba despite the serious interest.
It was reported yesterday that Juventus may look into a player-swap deal with United as they are keen to add out-of-favour, Nani and Javier Hernandez to their squad, but it now appears that no move will be in place after a post made by Vidal on his official Instagram account.
'I am happy'
As brought to our attention by the Express, the midfielder posted a picture of himself surrounded by his team-mates during their pre-season tour, and he attached to it a message that read: "I'm happy to stay here!".
This message comes as a serious blow to United, and potentially Chelsea and Liverpool as well.
