Conte insists duo will stay

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has insisted that in-demand duo Arturo Vidal and Fernando Llorente will remain at the club.

Llorente is a reported target of new Barcelona boss Luis Enrique as he looks to exert his own influence on the Catalan giants, while Vidal has been linked with a host of top European sides including Barca, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

However Conte, whose own future was in doubt until the Serie A champions confirmed he would be at the helm next season, is adamant the pair will remain in Turin.

"Vidal remains, yes," Conte told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Until a different thing, he will remain also next season.

"Fernando (Llorente) has been important and he will stay with us for a long time.

"We have changed our game for his characteristics and also Tevez took advantage of this."
