Arturo Vidal concedes Manchester United are ‘one of the biggest clubs in the world’, but says he is happy at Juventus.
The 27-year-old has been the subject of continued links to the Old Trafford outfit this summer, with talk of a possible €44m, £35m deal in the works.
However, on from reports in England that a move at such a price level is unlikely, the player himself has indicated that where there may still be uncertainty on his future, he is happy where he currently is.
“On my future, I want to return to Italy and then we will see what happens,” Vidal has begun in conversation today with Fox Sports.
“I really do not know anything about what is going on. I’m not reading the papers, I am very calm, and I’m doing everything possible to recover from a knee injury.
“Things are going well and I am happy at Juventus.
“I’m concerned about doing things with the people that I love, everything else is being dealt with by my agent.
“It would be wrong to talk about another team, I just know that [United] are one of the biggest clubs in the world, but I still have a contract with Juventus.
“It would be disrespectful to talk about another team in front of Juventus and my teammates.”
Vidal raced back to the field this summer in time for Chile’s World Cup campaign, despite undergoing knee surgery on a meniscus injury in May.
“The knee is okay, I’m not doing anything. I am resting, taking advantage of the holiday break.
“I have tried to let it be because the last two months have been very intense.
Vidal and his Chile teammates were eliminated in the Round of 16 at this summer’s World Cup by hosts Brazil.
“I think we will be much better for the upcoming Copa America. We will play in our country, with our people, it will be a wonderful tournament.
“Hopefully we will do well, we have time to accomplish something important.”
