Vidal Wants Juve Stay

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal says that he is flattered by interest from Real Madrid, but wants to stay with the Old Lady.

The Chilean had been linked with a move to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer with reports suggesting that Los Blancos had bid over 30 million euros for the player.

The 26-year-old, though flattered by the interest, says that he is impressed by the fact that Juve would turn down such a big offer to keep him.

"I’m flattered by Real Madrid’s interest in me, but I want to stay at Juventus," he said at a press conference.

"It’s nice to know that the club have turned down such an important offer for me without giving it a second thought."

Juve general director Giuseppe Marotta added, "He is a strong player and a reference point for Juventus going forward.

"We are in contact with his agents. It will not be a problem to come to an agreement for a contract renewal."
