This fuelled rumours that Bayern were setting the groundwork to sell on 30-year-old Vidal to Inter.

However, Mediaset Premium insist both the German club and Coach Carlo Ancelotti have vetoed a Vidal transfer.

Juventus look at Goretzka

Juventus have approached Schalke 04 to ask after Germany international Leon Goretzka, according to Italian reports.

Sports reporter Giovanni Albanese, who works for Il Fatto Quotidiano newspaper and Calciomercato.it, claims that important developments are expected over the next few days.

The 22-year-old already has nine senior caps for his country, in which he scored three goals.

His contract is due to expire in June 2018 and this could give Juve the edge in negotiations.

Roma close to Nastasic

Roma are believed to be very close to concluding a deal for Schalke defender Matija Nastasic.

The Giallorossi need defensive reinforcements, as Antonio Rudiger has signed for Chelsea and the Serbian has been identified as their top target.

Tonight Sky is reporting that an agreement is very close, with the Lupi confident of closing the deal.

Sporting director Monchi is still working to lower the €20m asking price, but the gap should be bridged with bonuses.

Inter drop Nastasic interest

Inter have reportedly given up their pursuit of Matija Nastasic, put off by Schalke’s €20m asking price.

The Nerazzurri had been tracking the 24-year-old and been in talks with his agent Fali Ramadani.

However, according to sources in Germany, Schalke 04 wanted €20m.

This is considered far too high for the defender, who Schalke signed from Manchester City for €9.5m in the summer of 2015.

Juventus want Goretzka

Juventus are reportedly interested in Leon Goretzka, but they face competition from Bayern Munich and the Premier League.

The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer of 2018, and has so far not signed a renewal with Schalke.

That has led to speculation that the German international could leave this summer, as his current side don’t want to risk losing him on a free transfer.

According to calciomercato.com, the Bianconeri are monitoring Goretzka’s situation, but won’t meet the current asking price of €30m.
