Juventus GM Beppe Marotta admits Real Madrid made an attempt for Arturo Vidal.

Vidal is expected to sign a new deal in the coming weeks.

"Vidal is a very valuable player to us and always gives his contribution. The transfer market is irrational at times, but we have never actually decided what he's worth. Real Madrid asked for Vidal, but we turned them down. We never even discussed a possible sale."
