I’m already at a great club, says United target Arturo Vidal

Arturo Vidal will not panic if nothing comes of a proposed move to Manchester United, pointing out he is already at a "great team" in Juventus.
The Chile international has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford as United look to rebuild under new coach Louis van Gaal following a dismal season that saw them miss out on European football for the first time in 25 years.
However, recent speculation suggests United's interest in the 27-year-old has cooled due to Juve's reported £35million valuation of the midfielder.
If that is the case, and Vidal does not end up at United, then the former Bayer Leverkusen and Colo-Colo player admits he will be happy to stay at Juve - although he says his focus right now is on enjoying his post-World Cup break and not thinking about his future.
He was quoted as saying on www.chilevision.cl: "I'm not thinking of where I'm going to go, I want to take advantage of my holidays with the people I love. Right now I'm thinking of other things. Afterwards, when I arrive in Italy, I'll see.
"I'm already at a great team, Juventus, so I will be just as calm if the Manchester United option falls through."
United, who on Monday announced a £750m sponsorship deal with adidas, have already made two big-money signings this summer in defender Luke Shaw and midfielder Ander Herrera but are being linked with a host of other players.
