Bayern Munich midfielder ​Vidal opens door for summer Chelsea move

Bayern Munich and Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal is refusing to rule out a move in the summer, with Chelsea mentioned as likely suitors in the media.

Vidal says he is focused on winning trophies with Bayern, but will discuss the future in the summer.

The midfielder has been great since signing for Bayern from Juventus, but the summer arrival of Leon Goretzka on a free transfer will only add to the competition for places in central midfield in Munich.

A move to Chelsea would be a fresh challenge, a final big contract for Vidal, and a chance for Bayern to get younger in midfield.

"I'm still here until June and I'm happy," said Vidal.

"I hope to win the Champions League and then we'll see what happens, but at this moment I am 100 per cent at Bayern and there is no chance of changing teams."
