Vidal pledges future to Juve

Arturo Vidal has refuted rumors he is set to leave Juventus and pledged his future to the Serie A club.

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.
