Arturo Vidal’s agent, Fernando Felicevich, has denied any contact between the Juventus midfielder and Arsenal FC despite the transfer madness that ensued in last week of June.
The Juventus midfielder’s potential move to Arsenal FC was one transfer that had caught everyone’s imagination in the last week of June.
It started off as a gossip then soon became the most talked about news on social media, going on a full circle of speculation a validation a denial a more speculation a back to denial, in a space of six days.
The agent of the Chilean midfielder, who is currently away with the national side preparing for Copa America final against favorites Argentina, has come out and denied any contact with Arsenal FC regarding the Juventus man.
Vidal’s agent was quoted saying to Di Marzio, “For Arturo, there has been no contact with Arsenal.”
Vidal has cemented his reputation as one of the best midfielders in the world since he moved to Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011. The Chilean international has already helped the Serie A club to four league titles and was one of the key players in the side that nearly won the Champions League only to be beaten by FC Barcelona in the final.
When the 28-year-old was linked with a move to Arsenal, it got the gooners off their seats. Clearly, as it emerges now, by the confirmation from the player’s agent, there was nothing ongoing in terms of transfer of the Juventus man to Arsenal FC.
Well, there is a reason this time of the window is called ‘the silly season’.
