Arturo Vidal has refused to confirm whether he will stay at Juventus next season, claiming that he is yet to have a meeting with new manager Massimiliano Allegri to discuss his future.

The Chile International midfielder is said to be Louis Van Gaal's top summer target to partner new signing Ander Herrera in midfield, especially after the Dutch manager recently confirmed Michael Carrick will be out of action for around three months due to injury.

Recent reports claimed United and Juventus are in advance negotiations to agree a deal for a fee of around £32m plus the services of Patrice Evra.

Those reports have intensified after Antonio Conte's resignation as Juventus' boss - making it the biggest reason for Vidal's expected exit.

Nevertheless, the club's General director Antonio Marotta has denied the reports and even though he confirmed approaches from some big club regarding Vidal he said the club had no intention of selling him.

"Vidal is not for sale. He is one of the most important players in the squad. He is happy to be here. Many things have been written. We've never put him up for sale. Important clubs have asked after him, but we have never sat down to talk. The player decides and yesterday Vidal showed that he is happy to continue with us," Marotta said.

But now Vidal has left the door to his future wide ajar claiming that even though he is likely to stay with the Serie A giants he has not decided his future yet.

Asked if he was at the end of a cycle with Juventus, he said: "I don't feel that way, maybe I'll stay a lifetime at Juventus. When I arrive in Italy, I'll talk to the manager and see what happens. Now all I know is that I have a seven or eight-day holiday in Chile. I want to relax and, going to the beach".

"It's hard to talk about another team when you're already at a big one. I have been three times champion (with Juventus). I will have respect for my teammates. I heard about interest from Real, and United, but that's for another person to care about." Vidal reporters in Chile.

But recent reports claimed his agent Fernando Felicevich took advantage of his recent England visit to finalise Alexis Sanchez's Arsenal move to iron out Vidal's agreement with United.
