Bayern Munich may be willing to cash in on world-class midfielder; Chelsea linked to South American star

Posted by

According to reports, Bayern Munich would be willing to sell Arturo Vidal, only a year after signing him from Juventus.

The Mirror note that Bayern could be tempted to offload the Chile international, who has featured 24 times for the Bavarian giants this season, scoring twice and contributing four assists.

This may come as good news for Chelsea, with the tabloid noting that Italy coach Antonio Conte—who has been tipped to take over from interim coach Guus Hiddink in the summer—is considering Vidal among his top summer transfer targets.

Conte previously signed Vidal during his successful stint in Italy, bringing the tenacious midfielder to Juventus from Bayer Leverkusen in 2011.

The duo won three Serie A titles during their communal stay in Turin, a period in which Vidal developed into one of the finest midfielders in the world game, impressing with his box-to-box dynamism, his passing and his technical prowess.

Indeed, he would be a fine asset to a Chelsea midfielder which has struggled in light of the declining influence of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic this season.
