Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal has dropped a major hint that he could join Chelsea in the summer.

The Chilean international is apparently a transfer target for the soon-to-be Chelsea boss Antonio Conte and when asked if he’d consider joining the Italian manager at Chelsea, he said:

I have always said If I go to war I would take Conte with me. We will see what happens.

Vidal played for Conte at Juventus and is obviously a huge fan of his former manager and with a change of regime set to take place at Bayern, it could be the perfect time for him to make a move to England.

As reported by the London Evening Standard, Conte is as keen on Vidal as the player seems to be for him so it is not beyond the realms of possibility that he tries to take his former player to Stamford Bridge.

Most new managers like to sign a player they are familiar with when they move to a new club and it seems like Vidal could be that player for Conte.
