Juventus midfielder Arturo has commented on transfer speculation that linked him with a move to Manchester United last summer.
The Chilean international was the subject of significant interest from Manchester United over the summer as Louis van Gaal looked to strengthen his squad.
In the end, United signed Daley Blind, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria to improve a midfield that was found wanting under David Moyes last season. And Vidal admits he is happy to stay at Juventus after a summer of uncertainty.

Happy at Juventus
Speaking to Tuttosport as reported by the Daily Mirror, Vidal said: “All I can say is I’m very happy in Turin. My family and their well-being is the most important thing to me and they feel great here, it’s our home.
“It’s never easy to leave home.”
Along with Vidal, United were also linked heavily with Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman, who is a firm favourite of Louis van Gaal’s. In fact, United may go back in for the Dutch international in the January transfer window, despite spending the best part of £150m in their summer rebuild.
