Arturo Vidal has revealed that it is likely he would exit Bayern Munich at the end of the season as there has been high demand for him from the Premier League.

The 30-year-old has been long admired by both Jose Mourinho’ Manchester United and Chelsea boss Antonio Conte with the latter making a move in January’s transfer winter to land the former him but couldn’t pull through.

The Chile international has made 129 appearances for Bayern following his arrival in 2015, and with his contract expiring in 2019, it is reported by Metro that club giants Manchester United and Chelsea are both racing to get the midfielder to put to paper as both teams see ace Vidal as a great asset to their clubs.

Although Bayern welcome new member Leon Goretzka, the former Juventus star is not scared of losing his place at the Allianz Arena but reckons a move to another European giant would be welcome.

“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.

People at Bayern Munich are doing well, that’s why they don’t need to spend big money in the summer. I am ready to play in Europe until I am 37, then I want to return to Chile and play the last year of my career with Colo Colo.”
