Vidal dismisses Barca and Madrid talk
Arturo Vidal has rubbished rumours of a move to either Barcelona or Real Madrid in the summer, saying he is remaining focused on doing well with Juventus and Chile.
Vidal, 26, has scored 11 goals in Serie A this season and was Juve's top scorer in their ill-fated Champions League campaign, with five goals in six games.
His performances in Turin have inevitably attracted attention from several of Europe's biggest clubs, including the top two in Spain, but the midfielder is not letting the speculation distract him.
"There's nothing to it," he said from Chile's training camp in Stuttgart ahead of Wednesday night's international friendly with Germany. "It's ridiculous. I want to win the league with Juventus and then play a good World Cup.
"Of course I'm honoured that there are clubs asking after me, but I'm determined to reach my goals in Bianconero and in Italy, not in Spain. My one objective is to work hard every day and make my contribution to the club, and to win two titles -- the scudetto and the Europa League."
Vidal moved to Juve from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011 despite having apparently given his word that he would join Bayern Munich. After 144 appearances and 21 goals for the Bundesliga side, he has netted 39 times in 115 games for the Serie A leaders, and it is a move he does not regret.
"It was my choice to leave Germany," he said at a news conference. "It was my decision. I liked the option of Juventus and I don't think I got it wrong either."
