Juventus striker Arturo Vidal claims he will not have any regrets if his potential move to Manchester United fails to materialise, insisting he would be "be happy" to continue playing for the Italian champions.

The Chilean has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United, whose new boss Louis van Gaal has reportedly identified the 27-year-old midfielder as his number one target this summer.

Vidal had also hinted at being interested in moving to Old Trafford, saying that he would "love to play for one of the biggest clubs in the world."

However, after recent reports indicated that the Red Devils had given up the pursuit of Vidal due to Juventus' steep asking price, the Chilean now insists that he is happy to stay with the Italian club.

"I am already at a great team like Juventus. That's why it will not be a problem if the chance to join Manchester United falls through," Vidal told Chilean TV station Chilevision.

"I am not thinking about where to go next," he added. "I just want to enjoy my holiday here in Chile with the people I love. We will see what happens when I get back to Italy."

Meanwhile, Manchester United's other target Bruno Martins Indi has joined Porto on a four-year deal from Feyenoord.

Van Gaal was reportedly looking to bring the 22-year-old defender to Old Trafford after watching him do well with the Netherlands squad in the 2014 World Cup.

But the Dutchman, who made his debut for Feyenoord in 2010, felt Porto was the right club for him.

"To me, this feels like the right time to leave. I now have over a hundred games for the club and have played at a World Cup. I have said from the beginning that I hoped if I ever made the next step in my career it would be for the best of me and the club," Martins Indi told the Daily Mail.

Feyenoord's technical director Martin van Geel also feels that the youngster has made the right choice.

"This move comes at a good time for Bruno in his career. A big part of his training came at Feyenoord and he became an important player in our first team and now is also a full international. He is ready to move abroad. We wish Bruno good luck with this new challenge in his career," said van Geel.
