Manchester United target Arturo Vidal looks set to reject advances from Old Trafford and put pen to paper on a new contract with current club Juventus, according to talkSPORT.

The Chilean has been a key player for the Turin side since joining from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011, helping Antonio Conte’s team to two consecutive title wins in Serie A with his all-action midfield displays.

The 26-year-old was thought to be high on United’s agenda due to their desire to find a long-term replacement for the retiring Paul Scholes, who finally called time on his long career with the Red Devils at the end of last season.

Vidal’s fine form has seen him attract strong interest from Real Madrid as well as United this summer, but he looks ready to commit his future to Juventus, saying that he and his family are very happy where they are.

“Only a signature is needed. My family and I are happy here and do not want to go away,” he confirmed.

Vidal is one of many midfield targets that United manager David Moyes failed to bring to the club this summer, with the likes of Thiago Alcantara and Cesc Fabregas also rejecting moves to the Premier League champions.

Meanwhile, a former United player now also on the books at Juventus, Paul Pogba, has also moved to commit his future to the club after speculation linking him with both Chelsea and Arsenal during the summer transfer window.
