The Chilean international had looked set to leave the Italian giants over the summer with Louis Van Gaal’s new look Manchester United reported to be his most likely destination.
Real Madrid were also said to be interested but the 27-year-old insists he was only concentrating on recovering from a knee injury and plans to stay in Turin for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to the press he said; “The truth is I was calm and relaxed this summer, only focusing on my knee.
“I never once asked my agent or Juventus if something was happening.
“I have a pact with my agent: if there is something concrete, he alerts me. He did not alert me.”
Vidal then went on to suggest that he and his family are happy in northern Italy and that was the most important factor in his decision to stay put.
“I really don’t know. All I can say is I’m happy in Turin, my wife loves Turin and the little ones are happy here.
“My family’s happiness is more important than anything else.”
