The Chile international was heavily linked with a move to the former Premier League champions, with newly appointed Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal said to be a big admirer of the midfielder's talents.
However, Vidal remained with the Old Lady as he continued his recovery from a knee injury sustained in the 2013/14 season.
And he has moved to clarify his position once again, amidst reports that United are lining up a January bid for his services.
Responding to questions about United's reported interest in the off-season, Vidal told Tuttosport: "I was calm. I just thought about my knee.
"Never once I asked my agent or to Juventus if something was going on.
"I have a pact with my agent, if there is something concrete it's up to him to let me know. And he never called.
"I don't know exactly what happened during the summer months, but I think nothing really important."
When asked if he would consider an offer from the Red Devils should they come calling in the not-too-distant future, he added: "If I would accept a proposal of Manchester United? I don't know. I really don't know.
"I can only say that I'm really well in Turin. I'm happy here and my family is happy; for me this is more important than money or any other thing.
"In Juventus I'm happy, this is my home and it is always difficult to leave home."
