Real Madrid and Juventus top brass will reportedly discuss the respective futures of Arturo Vidal and Alvaro Morata when the two clubs meet next week to contest an encounter between club legends. Vidal is wanted by Madrid, and Morata by Juve, while both players have been linked with Premier League transfers, most notably to Manchester United and Arsenal.
Vidal has established himself among the most coveted midfielders in Europe since joining Juventus from Bayern Leverkusen, and has played a significant role in helping the club achieve three successive Serie A titles. The Chilean scored 18 goals last season alone.
Morata, meanwhile, is a talent well regarded at the Santiago Bernabeu, but the 21-year-old striker is of the opinion that the best outcome for his future could be to pursue a transfer away from Real Madrid. And, according to La Gazetta dello Sport, Juventus could be an option for Morata.
Juventus will supposedly put forward the idea of recruiting Morata when Andrea Agnelli and Florentino Perez on June 2, although any agreement may be swayed by the Italian champions’ willingness to part company with Vidal.
The 27-year-old is priced at around €50 million, and a fee such as this would pose no problem for Real Madrid. Manchester United, meanwhile, have also been credited with interest in Vidal, and it was reported this week that an approach has been made in the hope of bringing the player to Old Trafford.
Morata, meanwhile, is also a supposed target for Manchester United, while the youngster has also been mentioned as a target for Arsenal. The interest from the Gunners would appear to be more genuine, particularly given Arsene Wenger is actively pursuing the recruitment of another forward.
