Man United target Arturo Vidal plays down concerns about knee injury
Manchester United target Arturo Vidal insists his knee is 100 per cent after helping Chile draw with Mexico
Arturo Vidal has insisted that the Manchester United target’s knee is 100 per cent.
The 27-year-old Juventus midfielder completed 90 minutes of Chile’s goalless draw with Mexico on Saturday as Vidal continues his recovery from a knee problem.
In this game I proved that I can play in every Juventus match this season
The Chile international had to manage the knee problem during the World Cup as the South Americans reached the quarter-finals before losing to Brazil on penalties.
Vidal had been forced to sit out training ahead of his country’s clash against Mexico, but the Juve talisman, who was heavily linked with United this summer, is adamant that he feels fine.
“You can relax, my knee is back to 100 per cent,” Vidal said.
“Now I am ready for the flight to Turin and in this game I proved that I can play in every Juventus match this season.
“I feel in great shape. We have a series of big games coming up: Udinese, then the Champions League and after that Milan.
“They will all be tough, I will have to be 100 per cent, but tonight I proved that I can play a full match without problems.”
