Vidal won't ditch Juve for inferior Madrid – Marotta

The director insists no players will be leaving the Serie A champions to join the Spanish side, saying it would be a step down for any of the Bianconeri stars

Giuseppe Marotta says there is no way Arturo Vidal will leave Juventus this summer to join Real Madrid because the Spanish side are not as good as the Italian champions.

Juve beat Real Madrid 3-2 on aggregate in the Champions League semi-finals to set up a final clash with Barcelona in Berlin on June 6.

After wrapping up a fourth consecutive Serie A title and winning the Coppa Italia, the Bianconeri will be looking to secure a treble when they take on Luis Enrique’s men.

And Marotta does not believe any of his side’s star players would leave Turin in order to join a Madrid side who failed to win any major silverware this term other than the Club World Cup.

He told Tuttosport : “No, Vidal or any player will not go to Real Madrid, because Juventus is stronger.”

Madrid have been heavily linked with the Chilean midfielder and star player Paul Pogba over the last year.
