Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal remains calm over his future and insists he will be happy to remain at Turin if the move to Manchester United fails to materialize.
Arturo Vidal’s future at Juventus has come under a lot of speculations with the Chilean international being linked with a move to Old Trafford. But recent reports suggest that Manchester United decided against pursuing their interest as they are unwilling to meet Juventus’ valuation. The midfielder however remains calm about his future and insists that he will be happy to extend his stay in Italy if the move to Manchester United fails to materialize.
Vidal joined the Italian club from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 and has since then been a regular in Antonio Conte’s side. The 27-year-old has established himself as arguably the best midfielder in the world currently and has already won three Serie A titles with the Italian club.
Vidal finished last season with 11 goals and five assists in 28 starts in the league and his consistent performances has drawn a lot of attention from a host of European clubs. Real Madrid and PSG were initially linked with a move for him, but Manchester United are believed to be the current frontrunners in the race for his signature.
Reports in Chilean media initially suggested that the Red Devils are close to agreeing a fee with Juventus for this move. According to La Tercera, the deal will be worth £32million plus Patrice Evra. United officials have already held talks with Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich and the Chilean international is keen on a move to Old Trafford.
However recent reports in English media claim that United and Louis van Gaal have decided not to pursuit their interest in Vidal as they are unwilling to match Juventus’ valuation of the midfielder. Vidal however remains calm about his future and insists he would be happy to extend his stay at the Italian club if the move to Old Trafford fails to materialize.
“I’m not thinking of where I’m going to go, I want to take advantage of my holidays with the people I love.
“Right now, I’m thinking of other things. Afterwards, when I arrive in Italy, I’ll see.
“I’m already at a great team, Juventus, so I will be just as calm if the Manchester United option falls through.” – Vidal said in an interview with Chilean television.
