The Chile midfielder was strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer after his impressive performances helped Juve win back-to-back Serie A titles.

"Vidal's contract extension is imminent," Marotta told www.tuttomercatoweb.com.

Vidal is expected to put pen to paper on a contract that will keep him with the Turin giants until June 2018.

The 26-year-old scored 15 goals and set up a further 11 in all competitions last season.

Vidal joined Juve in 2011 from Bayer Leverkusen in a nine million euros transfer deal.
