Isla staying at Juventus, but…

Juventus have told Mauricio Isla that he is staying in Turin, but his agent is still not closing the door on a possible move to Inter.

The Nerazzurri had done a deal with the Old Lady to sign their 50 per cent share in the player who is co-owned with Udinese.

However, the transfer collapsed after Juve boss Antonio Conte told club officials that he would like him kept for 2013-14.

“Juventus want to count on the player,” agent Claudio Vagheggi said on Sport Italia. “Conte has said that he likes Isla and so, for now, my client will remain in Bianconero.

“However, as is often said at this time of year, you never know what will happen during the transfer window.”

Isla, 25, was used in just 11 League games last season on his return to full fitness from knee ligament damage.
