Vidal opens the door to Bayern exit

Arturo Vidal has admitted that he could leave Bayern Munich this summer and will speak to his agent regarding a potential transfer.

The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League over the last few transfer windows, with Manchester United and Chelsea said to be keen on securing his services.

The once integral midfielder has seen his importance at Bayern Munich dwindle over the last season, making just 17 league starts, with his last appearance for the club coming at the beginning of April.

Bayern have already agreed a deal to bring in Leon Goretzka from Schalke, meaning Vidal’s opportunities could be further restricted next season. Speaking about his future, the Chilean has now admitted that he could be heading out of the Allianz Arena’s exit door:

“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,” Vidal is quoted as saying by 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.”

While Manchester United are of course a possibility, and are in the market for a new dynamic midfielder, Chelsea’s failure to reach the Champions League could see the Blues out of the running for Vidal’s services:

He added: “If I change my team it’s going to be for the better, to fight for the Champions League, to win titles, to fight for important things.”
