Vidal's future has been the subject of much speculation throughout the summer, but Juventus insist he will only be allowed to leave if he asks for a move.

The 27-year-old, who joined from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011, starred for Chile at this summer’s World Cup and United have widely been credited with an interest in bringing him to Old Trafford.

However, despite recent reports of a £45million bid from United, Pogba insists that everybody currently at Juventus is keen to see Vidal stay in Turin.

"He (Vidal) is training to get his fitness. We all want him to stay at Juve," said Pogba.

Former AC Milan boss Massimiliano Allegri replaced Antonio Conte in charge of Juventus this summer, but Pogba says little has changed in terms of playing style after their third successive Serie A title win

"For the moment we are utilising the same system as we did previously, working a lot on possession of the ball," he said.

"It's like what we did before. When you play with for three years with a winning system, there is no need to change a lot.

"It’s only necessary to keep some characteristics and improve others. That’s what the coach is trying to do."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
