The Bayern Munich talisman Arturo Vidal has cleared the air of speculation again with his statement that he is happy with the Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich despite mounting a speculation that he is a top summer target for Chelsea football club.

“I am very happy here. I have to think about my family and I still have time on my contract,” Vidal told the Chilean radio station BioBio.

During his three years stay at the Italian champion Juventus, the incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte enjoyed a great relationship with the Chilean. Arturo Vidal was a key player for Conte in three Serie A title wins that he won. He has spoken about his admiration for Conte previously – quoting “I have also said if I go to war I would take Conte with me”. But recent news confirms that he is now attempting to play down the talks of a possible move to the London club.

Vidal scored the only goal of the game against Benfica in the first leg of Bayern’s Champions League quarter-final first leg, which separated the two sides as Bayern go through the second leg with a one-goal advantage.

The versatile midfielder has been a key player in Pep Guardiola’s typical gameplay this season, he has scored four goals and has assisted seven. It hasn’t even been a year since he arrived in Germany at the start of the season. With more than three years left on his contract, it is Vidal’s decision to take.

Bought for a hefty sum of £31million that too not even a year back, Vidal would cost Chelsea much more than that if the Blues really want to land him at the Stamford bridge, reports the Independent.

After the Benfica win Bayern boss Pep Guardiola quoted: “There are no doubts over Vidal’s quality,”

“When we have many great players in the offensive department, I have to limit it slightly. He can easily do the work in front of the defence because he is a tough and smart guy.”
