The 27 year old Chilean has been a key member of the Juventus first team set-up over the course of three successive Serie A title winning campaigns but comments made by the former Bayer Leverkusen man do nothing to quash talk of a possible move to Man United.

On the subject of ongoing interest in his services the goal-scoring midfielder states;

“I have a pact with my agent: if there is something concrete, then he alerts me. He did not alert me.

“I don’t know exactly what happened during the summer, but I doubt it was anything truly important, otherwise he would’ve warned me.”

On the subject of a possible move to Man United Vidal added;

“I really don’t know,”

“I can only say that I am happy in Turin. I am happy, my wife loves Turin, Alonsito and the little one are happy here.”

Vidal would certainly offer Man United a fresh midfield option that would boost options in the final third.

Whilst Old Trafford boss Louis van Gaal has invested a fair bit in his Man United squad, with big money signings Radamel Falcao and Angel di Maria boosting his attack, it appears the Dutchman is keen to continue spending in January.
