However, the Bianconeri has now announced that while Vidal has been given the all-clear to link up with his country, which plays England and Brazil during the international break.

"Vidal, who left the action early last night against Napoli because of an injury, has been prescribed seven to eight days of rest," a club statement read. "He is still set to join up with the Chile squad, barring a decision to the contrary by the Chilean Football Federation (FFC)."

Juventus does not play again until November 24, when it takes on Livorno.
