The Chilean midfielder has attracted interest from Manchester United and Chelsea in recent months as his future continues to be speculated about with the Bavarian giants. Vidal recently spoke about the arrival of Schalke’s contract villain Leon Goretzka, Vidal dropped a huge hint that he may not end up staying at Allianz Arena at the end of this term and offered United and Chelsea hope of signing him as a result.
He said: “I know Goretzka will arrive at the club but I don’t know where he will be playing. As for my future I don’t know if I will leave or sign a contract extension with the club. We’ve taken the right path anyway.”
The 30-year-old has only 12 months of his current Bayern deal once the 2017/18 season is about to end, and the Premier League duo hope that he decides his future very soon.
Vidal played under current Chelsea manager Antonio Conte when the pair were at Juventus but, with Conte’s own Stamford Bridge future uncertain, United have emerged as rivals to sniff in and sign the iconic midfielder.
