Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed that Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal is not for sale, as the Serie A side unveiled their new manager Massimiliano Allegri.
Last night, previous manager Antonio Conte – who had won three consecutive league title with the Italian giants – resigned as head coach as many speculated that the club were about to sell their star player. But evidently Conte had other reasons to leave, most likely the Italian national team job, and Juventus do indeed want to keep the centre midfielder.
“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.”
