Vidal 'proud' of Real Madrid interest but insists he is happy at Juventus

The Chilean admits he is pleased to form part of the Blancos' reported transfer wishlist in the summer, but says he wants to continue representing the colours of the Old Lady
Arturo Vidal has reiterated his desire to stay at Juventus, despite the midfielder revealing that he has been made "proud" by reported interest from Real Madrid in his services.

The Chile international has developed into a hugely influential figure for the Bianconeri since his 12 million switch from Bayer Leverkusen, and his combative performances have reportedly garnered the overtures of the Spanish giants.

However, although Vidal is pleased by the links, he insists he has been given everything by Juventus and now wants to return the favour by ensuring his side pip AC Milan to the Serie A title at the end of the season.

"I do not know how much my input has contributed to us being in first place, but what matters is that the team is at the top," Vidal told Sky Sport Italia after scoring in Sunday's 4-0 win over Novara.

"I am proud of the interest from Real, but I'm happy to wear the shirt of Juventus. I can not ask for more."

Juventus are on 77 points with three matches left in the league calendar, three points ahead of the Rossoneri.
