Arturo Vidal

Manchester United-linked Arturo Vidal seems to retain his popularity among the Juventus fans despite the events of recent days.

Manchester United target Arturo Vidal may have been hitting the headlines over the past few days for the wrong reasons, but he is still very popular among the Juventus fans.

The 27-year-old midfielder was recently reported to be involved in an unsavoury incident on a night out and was subsequently left out of the starting line-up against AS Roma in Serie A.

Vidal, who is rated at £50 million, was left out of Juventus’s 1-1 draw with Sassuolo as well, and there were reports that the Italian champions were ready to sell him.

Both Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri and Vidal have made it clear that there are no problems, and it seems that the fans are happy with their star player, collecting his autograph during a training session.

Vidal is expected to return to the Juventus team for the Champions League Group A clash against Olympiakos away from home on Wednesday.
