Target snubbing United talk

Last Updated: Tue, 18 Mar 2014 08:33

Juventus star Arturo Vidal has refused to discuss a possible move to Manchester United because he fully focused on his current club.

The 26-year-old Chile international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the course of this season as Red Devils' boss David Moyes plans to overhaul his squad this summer and bolster his midfield options.

However, while United are certain to face hefty competition from Spanish La Liga heavyweights Barcelona and Real Madrid, the player has spoken out to dampen talk of a move away from Juve at the end of the season.

Indeed the £30million-rated Vidal is currently concentrating on helping the Turin outfit retain their Serie A crown before thinking about the future.

In an interview published in Tuttosport, he said: "I keep my feet on the ground otherwise I would go mad. I don't think much about what people say.

"I just concentrate completely on training and playing and on nice things like my family, who keep me humble.

"My name is in Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United's plans but I'll repeat that I'm only thinking about my games and giving everything for the Juventus shirt.

"On the other hand, one day, who knows? However, when you start thinking about these things you lose your way on the field and that's exactly what I don't want."
