RUMOUR: Chelsea ready to make €50m Vidal bid

Bayern Munich are open to the midfielder departing the Allianz Arena as they are keen for a more youthful duo at the heart of their side

Chile international Arturo Vidal wants to play in the Premier League and Chelsea are ready to give him the chance to do so.

Don Balon report that the Blues are lining up a €50 million bid for the 29-year-old Bayern Munich midfielder, who is open to a transfer next summer.

The deal hinges on Antonio Conte’s side being present in the Champions League next term, but as they boast a healthy lead at the summit of the standings that will probably not be an issue.

Bayern are keen to hand the keys to their midfield over to Joshua Kimmich and Renato Sanches, so are willing to let Vidal go.
