Juventus star Arturo Vidal opens up on Manchester United links

Arturo Vidal

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal comments on his future and reports linking him with a move to Manchester United in the summer transfer window.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has refused to rule out a move to Manchester United in the future.

The 27-year-old was strongly linked with a switch to the Red Devils in the summer transfer window.

Although Juve always denied that they were willing to sell the Chile international, reports both in the British and the Italian media claimed that an offer of £40 million could be enough to convince them to let go of their prized asset.

That offer from United never came, but what if the Premier League giants made a move for Vidal next summer? Will he be open to leaving the Italian champions for Louis van Gaal’s side?

‘If I would accept a proposal of Manchester United? I don't know’, he told Tuttosport, according to Sky Sports. ‘I really don't know. I can only say that I'm really happy in Turin.

‘I'm happy here and my family is happy; for me this is more important than money or any other thing. In Juventus I'm happy, this is my home and it is always difficult to leave home’.

The main reason for United manager Van Gaal reportedly pulling out of signing Vidal in the summer was a problem with his knee.

However, the former Bayer Leverkusen star has recovered from his knee issues and is now fully fit. But during the summer months, Vidal was thinking about his knee.

‘I was calm’, he said when about the summer transfer reports. ‘I just thought about my knee.

‘Never once I asked my agent or to Juventus if something was going on. I have a pact with my agent, if there is something concrete it's up to him to let me know. And he never called.

‘I don't know exactly what happened during the summer months, but I think nothing really important’.
