The club CEO has denied the midfielder will be sold.
There is some bad news for Manchester United in their pursuit of midfielder Arturo Vidal as Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta says the Chile international is not for sale.

The Red Devils have been in pursuit of the 27-year-old for some time with new manager Louis van Gaal believed to have pinpointed Vidal as a transfer priority.
Yet Marotta has made it clear that Juve have no intention of selling the South American and all United can hope for now is a transfer request from the player himself.
This outcome has been made more likely in the last 24 hours following the resignation of Antonio Conte as La Bianconeri manager on Tuesday.
Vidal and Conte had a strong working relationship with both men arriving at the Juventus Stadium in 2011 and enjoying three years of success in Turin that included three Serie A titles.
The departure of the 44-year-old has now put the futures of several top stars at the club into doubt, although the Old Lady have tried to ensure stability by appointing Massimiliano Allegri as the new boss swiftly.
