Arturo Vidal: If I leave Bayern, it has to be for something better

Bayern star Arturo Vidal has insisted he will only leave Bayern for something better, specifically fighting for the Champions League and winning trophies.

The Chilean is reportedly a target of Manchester United who seem him as the ideal signing should Marouane Fellaini move on.

The Belgian’s contract runs out this summer and with no real end in sight to negotiations, it appears Jose Mourinho will lose one of his most trusted players.

Vidal is expected to leave the German champions this transfer window and with just one year on his contract, he could potentially arrive at Old Trafford for cheap.

Whether the rumours are genuine or not however, isn’t clear just yet but at least his comments rule out Chelsea’s interest in him, clearing the path for the Red Devils to make a move.

According to Metro, Arturo said: “At this moment everyone knows that I have one year left with Bayern, I am very calm, I know what I am worth, I know when I have to play important matches who I am and that is why there are so many offers when the market opens.

“This time I’m going to take it easy, my representative Fernando Felicevich is attentive to everything, I will try to rest and recover in the best way to see if I change equipment or not , be one hundred percent.

“If I change my team it’s going to be for the better, to fight for the Champions League, win titles, fight for important things.”

There are some concerns with Arturo Vidal such as the type of wages he’d demand as well as his age when it comes to securing a big transfer.

The tenacious midfielder would be expected to remain at Manchester United for just a couple of seasons before the cruel effects of time catches up with him.

Either way, it would be a surprise if Mourinho isn’t interested in him given how he’s one of the most talented midfielders in the world.
