Vidal to sign extension next month

Arturo Vidal will sign a contract extension with Juventus next month, tying him to the club until 2017.

The Chile international’s current deal ends in 2016, but the Bianconeri are keen to keep the midfielder for another four years which will see him reach 30 at the Old Lady.

The 26-year-old will also receive a hefty salary increase. Vidal currently earns €3.7m per season, but is hoping for €4.5m a year.

Juve director Beppe Marotta met with agent Fernando Felicevich yesterday in Milan, but Antonio Conte’s side are hoping to agree on €4m per season for the player, plus bonuses.

Vidal has become vital for the Bianconeri since his move in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen. Last season he scored 10 League goals in 31 matches as they romped to the title.
