According to Sport1, Bayern Munich midfielder and Chelsea target Arturo Vidal has said that he wants to sign a new contract at the Allianz Arena, dealing a blow to Chelsea’s hopes.

Vidal joined Bayern Munich after impressing for Juventus and his career has improved since the move, with many clubs like Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Real Madrid all being rumoured to be interested in the Chilean, even since his Juve days.

However, it looks that Vidal will stay at Bayern for the near future, by coming out and saying that he wants to sign a new deal at the German giants.

Vidal said:

I play in this team for a reason, and I’m certainly one of the world’s best in my position for a reason, I do not think about a change, I feel really good here. Of course I would like to extend. This is an option and my children are very happy here.

Vidal has won many domestic trophies but is yet to win the Champions League and at the age of 30, if he doesn’t win it soon he may have to consider a move to a side who are favourites for the biggest competition in Europe.
