Juve Confirm Real Want Vidal

Juventus director, Guiseppe Marotta, has confirmed that Real Madrid are keen to sign Arturo Vidal.

The Chilean international has been repeatedly linked with a move to Bernabeu but Marotta insists the Italian giants have no intention of selling him.

Marotta says Juventus will not sell Vidal, who recently signed a new contract with the Italian champions, unless the player wants to leave.

"Real Madrid showed interest in Vidal, but never made a formal offer," Marotta told reporters on Wednesday. 

"We are going to keep our players, as long as they want to stay here."

The aggressive holding midfielder has scored 18 goals in 44 games for Juventus this season.

It’s not the first time Real have been interested in the Chilean. Last summer they tried to sign him, but Juventus didn’t want to sell him then already.

If Juventus were to let Vidal go, Real would have to splash out at least €50m (R 712 million) or include their young striker Alvaro Morata in the deal.

Juventus are reportedly keen to sign the 21-year-old but they have to fend off interest from Arsenal.
