Juventus star set for new deal

Published Add your comment

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal is set to be offered a lucrative new two-year contract extension after the player attracted interest from Spanish giants Real Madrid this summer.

The Chilean has made a series of impressive performances for the Italian champions since a 2011 switch from Bayer Leverkusen and has generated a growing interest in his services from a host of top European clubs.

Vidal's proposed extension will keep him at the club beyond his current 2016 expiration date and will make any move for the player instantly more expensive for prospective suitors.

But now, Juventus club administrator Giuseppe Marotta has told Tuttosport: "Vidal arrived in Turin and the move was met with some scepticism.

"But he has done very well and now he should be rewarded.

"There have been big clubs in Europe interested in him, but in the coming weeks, his contract will be prolonged and economically adequate."

The Chile international has made 80 appearances for the Turin-based club, scoring 22 goals, including two against then-European champions Chelsea in last seasons Champions League.

As well as scoring vital goals, Vidal has provided the club with some added bite in midfield amid some impressive displays in the centre of the park.
