Juventus chief executive Beppe Marotta has claimed that injury problems ended Arturo Vidal’s chances of a move to Manchester United in the summer.

The Chile international was heavily linked with a transfer to Old Trafford following Louis van Gaal’s appointment but a move failed to materialise.

Vidal rushed back from a knee injury to make himself available for the World Cup in Brazil.

And Marotta says that the 27-year-old is now suffering the effects of failing to undergo a proper rehabilitation schedule following his injury.

“His injury influenced his departure and even now he doesn’t have the best physical condition,” said Marotta.

“For our part, however, there is a clear desire to keep him because we extended his contract.”

How badly do you want Man United to sign Arturo Vidal?
