Arturo Vidal rules out Chelsea, remains keen on Man United move

Arturo Vidal looking for a summer transfer

After three seasons with Bayern Munich, and at 31, Arturo Vidal is looking for a new challenge.

The Chilean midfielder had an up and down season in 2017/2018. Vidal was part of the Chile squad that failed to reach the World Cup.

But, Vidal can point to a Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich to soften the blow of not playing in Russia and the injury that curtailed his campaign in April.

Vidal is widely expected to leave Bayern Munich in the coming weeks and increasingly is being linked with a move to the Premier League.

Arturo Vidal no longer interested in joining Chelsea

In recent years, Vidal has been heavily linked with Chelsea, mainly due to the fact he enjoys a fine relationship with Antonio Conte.

However, with Conte set to leave Chelsea, Vidal has another reason meaning he doesn’t want to head to west London.

According to Chilean journalist Maks Cárdenas, Vidal is no longer interested in Chelsea as they are not in the Champions League next season.

Manchester United remain Vidal’s primary choice in England, according to Cardenas.

Bayern Munich would sell Vidal for 50 million euros. A fee of 35 million euros is also possible.

Vidal is currently recovering from a second knee operation. First team opportunities at Bayern Munich are expected to be restricted by the free transfer signing of Leon Goretzka from Schalke.
