The Chile international midfielder has been linked with the 20-time top flight champions all summer, with new boss Louis van Gaal himself admitting to being a fan of the 27-year-old.

Reports of a deal including Javier Hernandez going the other way have been touted around, but nothing has materialised.

Allegri has had to respond to such talk all summer, but has now moved to put the rumours to bed and wants to concentrate on getting his star man back to full fitness.

"He's a fundamental player for Juve and he will stay with us," Allegri said in a press conference.

"He feels good and is training.

"His knee must be managed and he will start as a regular."

On the eve of the opening round of Serie A fixtures, Vidal has tweeted a message to his fans, and seems focused on helping The Old Lady retain the Scudetto.

"Ready to start the Championship!" Vidal said.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
