Arturo Vidal says he is happy to stay at Juventus and is ready to sign a long-term contract with the club.

The Chilean international has been in fine form for the Bianconeri this season, peaking on Tuesday night after he scored a hat-trick in the 3-1 win against FC Copenhagen.

That form had reportedly attracted the attention of Manchester United manager David Moyes, who was keen to add Vidal to the midfield at Old Trafford.

With Vidal scoring 10 goals in 18 games this season, Vidal was seen as the creative force that Manchester United are crying out for.

But it seems that Moyes will have to start looking at other targets after Vidal confirmed he will not be leaving Turin and will sign a new contract.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "I am happy at Juventus and I want to stay here. I'm ready to sign [a new deal].

"The beginning of next week should be a good time to announce my new contract."

The midweek hat-trick in the Champions League was the first of Vidal's career and the 26-year-old has admitted his prolific form has come as a shock to him.

"I never expected to be able to score so many," he continued. "I remember when I first arrived at Juventus, Antonio Conte spoke to me about a new way of playing and it's worked well for me."

Vidal's current deal expires in the summer of 2016, but is expected to put pen to paper on a long term deal in the near future.
