Juventus chief Beppe Marotta updates Arturo Vidal situation

Juventus fans

Arturo Vidal is no closer to a transfer, as Juventus chief reiterates the club's stance in the latest Manchester United transfer news.

Manchester United are embroiled in one of the most protracted transfer sagas of the current window as there remains a sense of ambiguity over Arturo Vidal's future.

Earlier in the week, the club were given an eight-day deadline in their quest to add the Chilean box-to-box sensation to their strengthening roster, however, the player recently uploaded an Juve squad photo to his social media account on Twitter and exclaimed his eagerness to return to work.

The sentiment behind the post suggested that Vidal saw his future with the Old Lady of Serie A, rather than a Premier League side desperate for a renaissance in the coming season.

While Vidal said he is "happy" to stay in Turin, the Express report that the player's agent Fernando Felicevich - who brokered the deal that saw Alexis Sanchez move from Barcelona to Arsenal - is "working around the clock" to complete the transfer.

Man hours dedicated to the switch could be made in vain as Juventus chief Beppe Marotta has given an update on the situation.

He told Sky Italia: "Vidal feels good with us, and we are happy to have him here. We have already renewed his deal, I don't think there will be problems."

Vidal has a transfermarkt.co.uk valuation of £40 million but would likely command a fee far higher, perhaps as grand as £50 million. He is contractually-bound to the Serie A club for another three seasons.
