Juventus hold firm on Vidal

Reports continue to suggest Manchester United are pushing for Arturo Vidal, but speculation on the likelihood of a move is falling.

On from indications yesterday from Britain that the Red Devils are preparing an assault for the Juventus man, comes the Gazzetta dello Sport’s assertion that yesterday, Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich was in Manchester.

The pink daily writes that whilst no formal offer has come in to the Bianconeri, yet, movement on this front could happen in the next 24 to 48 hours.

Whilst reports in Britain suggest that United may include Shinji Kagawa in any possible deal, other outlets in Italy suggest Juve are resolute in keeping hold of Vidal.

Tuttosport lead with this suggestion, reporting that Juventus have ‘closed the door’ on any interest coming in from Louis van Gaal’s side, with the belief that the player is happy to remain in Turin on his current contract.

The Corriere dello Sport reiterate this position and report that Juve are now firmly against selling Vidal due to the difficulty they would face in finding a replacement.

Transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio is another to make clear that the Old Lady is unwilling to consider offers for the 27-year-old.
