Bayern Munich midfielder Artuto Vidal insists he isn’t planning on a transfer this summer, despite speculation to the contrary.
The Daily Star linked Vidal with either Manchester United or Chelsea in a £53 million deal recent, while Transfermarketweb also claimed Liverpool could be in the running for the Chile international.
However, Vidal has given a major hint that if he were to move, it would be for a club that has Champions League football next season. Sorry, Chelsea (not sorry).
Chelsea finished fifth, therefore, lost out on a Champions League spot, which ultimately rules out their move for the Bayern Munich man
“At this moment everyone knows that I have one year left with Bayern, I am very calm, I know what I am worth, I know when I have to play important matches who I am and that is why there are so many offers when the market opens,” he is quoted in the Metro.
“This time I’m going to take it easy, my representative Fernando Felicevich is attentive to everything, I will try to rest and recover in the best way to see if I change equipment or not, be one hundred percent.
‘If I change my team it’s going to be for the better, to fight for the Champions League, win titles, fight for important things.’
Vidal is a football you could see benefit from the English game considering his combative nature and work rate, and United need midfielders making it a transfer from heaven.
The problem with Vidal, however, is his age. At 31, we’re not sure how long he will last at the very top, but this is a player of the highest standard we’re talking about.
