Man United transfers: Arturo Vidal aware of Red Devils interest
Man United transfers: Arturo Vidal says he has heard of the Red Devils' interest in him but won't comment on it
Arturo Vidal admits that he has heard about Manchester United’s interest in him – but insists that he already considers himself to be at a “top club” with Juventus.
Speculation linking the Chile international with a transfer to Old Trafford has been rife in recent days after the player himself admitted that he would like to join “one of the biggest clubs in the world”, with Real Madrid also touted as a possible destination.
I have heard about the interest shown by Real Madrid and Manchester United in me
And although the 27-year-old has heard about the admiring glances from some of Europe’s top clubs, Vidal refused to be drawn on the speculation.
“It’s difficult to speak of other teams when you are already at a top club,” Vidal told La Cuarta.
“I have won the Serie A title three times and I respect my team-mates.
“I have heard about the interest shown by Real Madrid and Manchester United in me but it is my agent who deals with this.”
Vidal has been one of the key members of Juventus’s all-conquering side in Serie A, scoring 11 goals and making five assists in 32 top-flight appearances last season.
He has won three Serie A titles since joining Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011.
