Vidal rules out leaving Juventus

Manchester United was believed to have been targeting the Chile international, but the 26-year-old says that there is no chance of him leaving the Italian champion.
Arturo Vidal has quashed talk of a move away from Juventus by declaring his intention to remain in Turin.

The Chile international has once again been in sensational form for the Bianconeri this season and has been repeatedly linked with a host of top clubs, including Premier League champion Manchester United.

However, Vidal, who recently penned a contract extension until 2017, insists that he has no intention of leaving Juve, either during the current transfer window or in the summer.

"Will I leave? No, I will definitely stay in Turin," the midfielder told Rai Sport

Vidal was speaking after being named in the Serie A Top 11 at the Gran Gala del Calcio Aic 2013 awards ceremony in Milan on Monday night, and was quick to pay tribute to his Juve colleagues for the role they have played in his nomination.

"I've scored 10 important goals for the team this season but I must give thanks to my teammates," he stated.

"Against Lazio [after being reduced to 10 men in Saturday's 1-1 draw at the Stadio Olimpico], we showed that we never give in."

Vidal joined the Bianconeri from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 and played a key role in the club's subsequent back-to-back Scudetto successes.
