Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has added fuel to the fire that he could leave the Bundesliga club at the end of the season.
The Chilean international has been heavily linked with a switch to Chelsea, and speaking to German publication Kicker (translated by the Daily Star), the player said he does not know what his future plans are beyond this campaign:
“I’ll stay here until the summer, then we’ll see what happens.”
German tabloid Bild have reported this week that Vidal will be allowed to leave in the summer as the club believe Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka will be an adequate replacement.
Vidal is still very much part of the first team setup under interim manager Jupp Heynckes, having made 25 appearances in all competitions for Bayern this season.
However, the midfield enforcer will turn 31 in May, and will have just 12 months left on his contract in the summer. The German club may feel it is time to sell the Chilean with the Blues waiting in the wings to snap up the player.
