Arturo Vidal: Chilean says he is staying at Juventus

Arturo Vidal: Chilean says he is staying at Juventus

The former Bayer Leverkusen midfielder has been linked with a move away from Turin in recent months with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich all reportedly interested in securing his signature.

But the Chilean is insisting he will stay with the UEFA Champions League Quarter-finalists beyond the summer.

He said: "I will stay here. I have another three-and-a-half years on my contract, so I will stay."

And the 25-year-old says he is fully focused on helping Juventus overcome Bayern Munich in the next round of the Champions League after they swept aside Celtic in the round of the last-16.

"It will be a big challenge," he said. "We are two of the sides with a good chance of winning the whole competition."

Reports are also linking Juventus with a summer move for Vidal's Chilean compatriot and Barcelona forward Alexis Sanchez.

"I'd be happy should Sanchez join me here," he added.

Barcelona transfer ban upheld

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
