£50m Manchester United target hails 'special day' after saga

Manchester United summer target Arturo Vidal makes 100th appearance for Juventus.

Midfield general Arturo Vidal has shown his delight at Juventus by hailing a milestone at the club.

The Chilean international was linked throughout the summer with a transfer to Manchester United, but has put the saga behind him.

Instead his focus has been battling to stay fit, returning to the side to play 70 minutes in a 3-0 win away to Atalanta.

After the game he showed his delight, with it his 100th game for the Serie A side.

He is quoted by TMW: "For me it is an important day, celebrating my hundredth appearance with this shirt.

"I always think to win, we want to bring Juventus at the top. Atalanta will be difficult to deal with, it's tough playing on their pitch.

"We are focused on this title race, but thinking of the games against Atletico Madrid before Roma in the coming days."

Vidal was under-par in the display, unusually failing to win a single tackle, but Juventus were certainly just glad to have their talisman back in action ahead of two crucial matches.

They sit joint top of the Serie A table with Roma with five wins from five games, 10 goals scored and not a single one conceded. Juventus host Roma in the top of the table clash next Saturday.
