Arturo Vidal will not be leaving Juventus this summer, according to the Serie A club's chief-executive Giuseppe Marotta.

The Chile midfielder has been linked with a move to Manchester United or Arsenal this summer, but Marotta has insisted that the 27-year-old is "not for sale".

Marotta said: "Vidal is a Juventus player and we have never put him up for sale. A lot of clubs have asked for him but we have never sat down to negotiate.

"We want to keep him. Vidal has expressed many times how happy he is to remain in Turin and, if that is confirmed, we will be happy to continue together."


Speaking in Chile earlier this week about the potential of a move to Old Trafford, Vidal said: "I'm already at a great team, Juventus, so I will be just as calm if the Manchester United option falls through."
