The Chile international has been the subject of interest from Manchester United all summer but took to Twitter to reiterate his commitment to the BianconeriArturo Vidal says he is "100 per cent" ready to start the season with Juventus, despite strong interest from Manchester United.
Louis van Gaal is an avowed admirer of the Chile international and, having pursued him for most of the summer, Goal revealed that United would make a final push to sign him before Monday's transfer deadline.
But Juventus have been unwavering in their public insistences that Vidal will not be sold this summer and now the player himself appears to have scotched talk of a move to Old Trafford.
Vidal tweeted: "Ready to start the championship! We are 100% Juventus !!!!!"
Listos para comenzar el campeonato! Al 100% vamos Juventus!!!!! pic.twitter.com/Rs1RyOm1Wh— Arturo Vidal (@kingarturo23) August 29, 2014
New Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri reiterated that the Chilean midfielder is staying in Turin, which the club have insisted since rumours surfaced about Man Utd's interest earlier this summer.
"Both myself and the club have repeated several times that Arturo is a Juventus player and he is very important to us," the coach stressed. "He is a key player and will remain with us."
Manchester United have recruited Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera and Angel Di Maria this summer for a combined outlay of around €150 million as Van Gaal bids to reinvigorate an ailing squad.
