Manchester United will not be signing Arturo Vidal this summer, according to the player’s manager at Juventus, Massimiliano Allegri.

Reports earlier today from Chile – the player’s homeland – suggested that a verbal agreement had been reached between the midfielder and the Red Devils, with Louis van Gaal’s side having offered him wages of close to £300,000-per-week.

Vidal has also been linked with Liverpool, but United have long been seen as the most likely suitors for the 27-year-old, with their new boss desperate to add his dynamism and work-rate to his engine room.

But despite the suggestions and rumours, Allegri says that the South American will be staying in Turin:

“Vidal will stay here and he’s very happy about this,” he is quoted by The Metro.

“I spoke with him about his fitness, we’re happy he will stay with us.”

Juve’s chief executive Guiseppe Marotta has also waded into the sage by insisting that the Old Lady have not desire to sell and that Vidal’s new contract – signed a few months ago – should be enough to ensure that he will not be heading to United:

“We don’t want to sell Vidal, there are only rumours because he is a player among the best in the world.

“We renewed Vidal’s contract a few months ago just because we knew we could count on an important element.

“We never activated a clause to try to sell him — if he doesn’t show an intention to leave, our position won’t change.”
