Manchester United dealt transfer blow

Arturo Vidal (Juventus)

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has expressed his desire to stay with the Turin club for the long term, as reported by Sky Sports News.

Manchester United have been keen on the Chilean international who was injured when his national team came to Wembley last week.

United were expected to make a January bid for the Juventus star man as boss David Moyes continues to be frustrated by his lacklustre midfield, with new boy Marouane Fellaini yet to impress.

Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich have also been linked with interest of the holding midfielder who has become a key man in Turin over the past 18 months alongside former United youngster Paul Pogba.

Despite being linked to some of the biggest clubs in the world, Vidal is more than happy to stay with Juve and go on and win more trophies with the Old Lady.

“I am fine in Turin and my family is very happy in the city,” Vidal told Italian press.

“In addition to that, I want to keep on winning titles with Juventus.”
