Manchester United Target Arturo Vidal Refuses To Deny He Is Leaving Juventus

Posted by

The Chilean could well be heading to Old Trafford after all.

Long-term Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has spoken out about his time at Juventus and what the future may hold for the midfielder.

Both the Red Devils and Real Madrid have been keeping an eye on the 27-year-old, who’s future in Turin was plunged further into doubt when Juve manager Antonio Conte stepped down from his position on Tuesday.

Vidal is currently on holiday after his involvement at the 2014 World Cup with national team Chile and has revealed he will speak to new boss Massimiliano Allegri before making any decisions.

“It’s difficult to speak of other teams when you are already at a top club,” the South American was quoted by Eurosport.

“I have won the Serie A title three times and I respect my team-mates.
“I have heard about the interest shown by Real Madrid and (Manchester) United in me but there is someone (Vidal’s agent) who deals with this.

“Have I completed a cycle [at Juve]? I don’t feel that way,” he said. “Perhaps I will remain at Juventus all my life.

“Once I arrive to Italy I will speak to the coach and see what happens.”

Although Vidal has hardly confirmed he is leaving the Juventus Stadium, these comments from the midfield ace will give some hope to United in their pursuit of the Chilean.

Especially as Madrid have just signed Toni Kroos from Bayern Munich and are therefore unlikely to be looking to bring in another central midfielder so soon afterwards.
