Juventus managing director Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that Arturo Vidal has asked to leave as his move to Bayern Munich edges closer.
Chile midfielder Vidal has been heavily linked with a switch to Bayern in recent days, with reports on Monday indicating that a fee has been agreed between the clubs.
And Marotta has all-but confirmed that the 28-year-old is on his way out of the Juventus Stadium, but he also insisted that Juve are under no obligation to sell star man Paul Pogba and have not lodged a bid for Porto’s Alex Sandro.
“As you know, football is an activity, a business, where everything moves very quickly, so we’ve had to deal with situations which were perhaps unexpected, like with [Carlos] Tevez, with [Andrea] Pirlo and with Vidal,” he said.
“Vidal has expressed his desire to embark on a different experience, as did [Angelo] Ogbonna, Tevez and Pirlo.
“Vidal’s situation will be finalised, but hasn’t been finalised yet.
“There is absolutely no requirement to sell Pogba. Alex Sandro is a good player, but there is no offer in for him.”
