Vidal Rules Out January Exit

Chilean Talks About Knee Injury

Arturo Vidal Manchester United transferManchester United transfer target Arturo Vidal has spoken of the knee problems that scuppered a move to Old Trafford during the summer.

The Chile international was linked with interest from United, but the Red Devils decided against a move for the Juventus midfielder amidst fears that an operation on his meniscus was only a ‘patch-up operation’.

“I started a bit late this year because of some knee problems, but then I recovered,” he told Radio Cooperativa.

“It was all under control because they knew that I would continue to have some discomfort for at least two to three months after the operation. That was explained by the surgeon who operated on me, Professor Cugat in Barcelona.”

Vidal played in three of Chile’s four World Cup games, but he failed to complete 90 minutes in any of those games and there were fears that his injury could flare up again at any time. With that in mind, United decided against any move.

Reports in Italy now claim that Manchester United’s cross-town rivals Manchester City are now interested in Vidal, but as he did publicly during the summer, the Chilean says he is happy where he is.

“Manchester City? I always attract many teams, but they are quiet.

“I’m good at Juve because this is my fourth year here and I feel at home. And I am thinking only about Juve.

“I am happy here. I have a person who takes care of these issues and that is my agent.”
