Arturo Vidal: Chile midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United

The 27-year-old has been heavily linked with a move from Juventus to Manchester United in recent days.

New United boss Louis van Gaal is embarking on rebuilding his squad following a dismal season that saw them miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years and part company with David Moyes.

Juventus have slapped a £35million fee on the player, but Vidal is in no rush to quit the Italian champions and insisted over the weekend he was happy.

Now whilst visiting a local charity during his holiday back in Chile, he again stated he was calm about his future.

"I'm not thinking of where I'm going to go, I want to take advantage of my holidays with the people I love," Vidal said on Chilean television.

"Right now, I'm thinking of other things. Afterwards, when I arrive in Italy, I'll see.

"I'm already at a great team, Juventus, so I will be just as calm if the Manchester United option falls through."

Vidal, who is under contract with Juve until June 2017, had right knee surgery on May 7 but recovered in time to help Chile reach the last 16 of the World Cup, where they lost on penalties to Brazil.

He added to Chilean sports programme Central Fox.: "My knee is good. I'm resting it after two hard months."

Vidal, who scored 11 goals in 32 league appearances for Juve last term, is expected to arrive in Turin for pre-season training on July 28.
