Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta insists that all the signs point to Arturo Vidal staying at the club this summer, despite interest from Manchester United.

The Chile international has been linked with Manchester United throughout the summer, but Juventus have continued to stick to a no-sale stance in public.

Now, as the transfer window enters its final two weeks, Marotta is growing increasingly confident that Juventus will be able to keep hold of the 27-year-old.

The CEO told Gazzetta dello Sport: "All the conditions are there for Vidal not to leave before the end of the market.


"Vidal has always said that he wants to stay here and we are more than happy to keep him."


Marotta yesterday confirmed that a knee injury, which had affected Vidal in the World Cup, has now cleared and the midfielder is training normally with his team-mates.

Juventus snapped up Vidal in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen, beating Bayern Munich to his signature.
