Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has quashed rumours that he could move to Manchester United this week.
The Chilean ace is believed to be one of David Moyes’ top targets, and has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford during the course of the past few weeks.
Despite having broken their transfer record to land Juan Mata over the weekend, United are said to have significant funds to complete more deals before Friday.
This has contributed to talk of a potential move for the 26-year-old, but the midfield general says that he will not be leaving Juve:
“Will I leave? No, I will definitely stay in Turin,” He is quoted by The Metro.
“I’ve scored important goals for the team this season but I must give thanks to my team-mates.”
Vidal is widely thought of as one of the very best enforcer’s in European football, with his rugged yet skilful displays having helped the Old Lady to claim back-to-back Serie A titles.
With a deal seemingly off of the agenda for United, Moyes could turn his attention to Fernando Reges.
The Brazilian’s contract with Porto runs out in six months’ time, meaning that he could be available for a cut-price move this week.
