Robin van Persie drops major hint that he will be at Man United next season

The Chile international has drawn the interest of the quartet for his performances this season. The 28-year-old has played 45 times and scored eight goals to help the Old Lady to win both the Serie A and Coppa Italia. He could complete a very successful season with a win in the Champions League final on Saturday.

Out of the Premier League sides the Merseyside outfit are the ones who need a player of Vidal’s quality the most. Even with the recent signing of James Milner the Reds could be transformed by the midfielder after losing Anfield legend Steven Gerrard at the end of the season and not qualifying for the Champions League.

However, it looks like Liverpool will have to look elsewhere as the Bianconeri have no intention of selling one of their best players.

Marotta said: “I have no problem saying it, Arturo Vidal will stay at Juventus next season; he is a player too valuable to let go. We have nothing concrete from Real Madrid or other teams, but we know that several major clubs are watching the Chilean.

“I repeat, Vidal is a prerequisite for the organisation of team player and also for the economy of the club. We have no intention of putting him on the market.”
