Former Bayern Munich teammate Rafinha made the revelation recently.
And speaking with Fla wing-back Mauricio Isla, Vidal revealed: “I'm glad you're wearing this jersey, the biggest in South America.
"We've been through a lot together in recent years. I love you and I say hello to you from Italy.
"I hope one day to have the chance that you have (to play Flamengo), take advantage of it."
