Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal insists he will not be moving to Old Trafford during the summer transfer window, according to the Daily Mail.
The Chilean international has been strongly linked with a move to the Red Devils in recent months and is thought to be one of Louis van Gaal’s primary transfer targets.
But the 27-year-old midfielder has finally confirmed that he won’t be joining Manchester United.
“I do not go to Manchester. Can I say I will remain with Juve? I don’t know.
I’ll talk to (manager Massimo) Allegri on Monday and then we will see. I haven’t spoken with Allegri or any of my team-mates yet, but I’m not going to Manchester,” Vidal said.
The South American star, who has three years left on his current contract. He arrived at Turin in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen, scored 11 goals in 32 appearances to help the Serie A giants in winning their third straight league title last season.
The reports suggesting that Premier League rivals Arsenal and Liverpool are also said to be interested in the midfielder’s signature.
