Vidal welcomes Isla to Juventus

Arturo Vidal is delighted that he’ll be joined by fellow Chilean international Mauricio Isla at Juventus next season.

The right-sided player is just an official announcement away from becoming a Juve player after having his Turin medical last week.

“I’m happy for Mauricio and for his family,” Vidal told Radio ADN. “I hope that he is able to do well at Juventus and that he can help the side reach its objectives.

“It is always difficult to be assured of a first team shirt at a big club in Italy, but he has the qualities to challenge anybody for a place.”

Isla, 23, will move to the Old Lady in a co-ownership deal along with Udinese teammate Kwadwo Asamoah. They’ll arrive for a combined fee of around €15m.
