Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal has been declared ‘untouchable’ by his club in the light of interest from Real Madrid.
The Chilean international was in sparkling form for the Bianconeri last season, which has led to interest from some of Europe’s top clubs, including the Spanish giants.
Nonetheless, according to Mundo Deportivo the Italians have issued a firm hands-off warning to their Spanish counterparts regarding the 26-year-old, at least for the time being.
“Arturo Vidal is untouchable,” Juventus reportedly informed Los Blancos when they asked about his availability.
Vidal signed a five-year contract with Juve and has become an integral part of boss Antonio Conte’s side as they bid for a third successive Serie A title next season, whilst also hoping to make their mark in the Champions League.
