Manchester United dealt major blow in pursuit of Juventus star

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has made it clear that he has no intentions of leaving the Italian club this summer despite interest from Premier League clubs and in particular Manchester United, according to the Express.

“I feel good at Juve and I don’t feel the need to move elsewhere. In Turin me and my family feel good,” Vidal told Italian paper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The Chilean international was at the centre of heavy rumours linking him with a move to the Red Devils in the summer, but the deal never came off and it’s thought the reason was due to a knee injury to Vidal.

Many are expecting Louis Van Gaal to be a busy man during the next transfer window, but it looks as though they can rule out the possibility of Vidal heading to Manchester.

The 27-year-old has made 24 league appearances for Juventus this season, contributing six goals and three assists for the Old Lady who are 12 points clear at the top of the table and cruising to a fourth consecutive Serie A title and 31st in the club’s history.

Juventus are Italy’s most successful club and have a Champions League quarter-final with Monaco to look forward to tonight and they will have high hopes of making the semi’s, with Vidal continuing to play a crucial role in the side.
