Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal has responded to rumors that Serie A champions Juventus are interested in signing him this summer.
The 33-year-old spoke to YouTuber Daniel Habif about the future and admitted he would be happy to speak to new Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo.
“It’s spectacular that he has become the coach of Juventus. If he was incredible as a player, imagine him as a coach. He has a real vision of the sport that very few have ever had in football, so I think he can do really well.
“Pirlo is also a wonderful person too, so I can only imagine he’ll be a great coach. We spent four years together and won the Scudetto four times, so if he were to call me, I’d be happy.”
Vidal is wanted by both Juventus and Inter but would prefer to head to Turin, according to Chilean newspaper La Cuarta. The midfielder has already been told by new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman he’s no longer needed at the Camp Nou.
