Arturo Vidal says that he is edging closer to agreeing a contract extension at Juventus following his fantastic form so far this season.
This comes as disappointing news to a whole host of clubs, such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona who were all hoping to make a move for the player.
The 26-year-old midfielder joined the club from German side Bayer Leverkusen in 2011, and has been a stalwart in the middle of the pitch whilst part of Antonio Conte's side so far this season.
He proved his form in Juventus' impressive Champions League win at home to FC Copenhagen in midweek with a hat-trick, reaching double figures in the process.
The Chile international appeared for his country against England just a few weeks ago and dictated the play as the South Americans left Wembley with a famous 2-0 victory.
"There is very little to go until we sign the new contract. I could sign it tomorrow, I'm just waiting to hear back from the club," said the midfielder.
"I'm always happy here at Juventus because wearing the shirt means the world to me."
Vidal could extend his contract until 2016, and it seems now it is just a formality before he puts pen to paper on a new lucrative deal.
