Arturo Vidal eyes new Bayern Munich contract despite transfer talk

Arturo Vidal eyes new Bayern Munich contract despite transfer talk

As a world-class midfielder, Arturo Vidal has nearly always been subject to interest from top European clubs since leaving his home country of Chile to defend the Bayer Leverkusen shirt back in 2007.

"It's clear I feel very good, especially physically, and I have no problems with injuries, which helps me".

"Of course I would like to extend my contract". "Our intention from the beginning has been to help support the growth of soccer in the USA, supporting the existing development of players".

"I am very happy that Bayern will continue to rely on me in the future, giving me the trust to reach the club's goals in the next few years".

Record German football champions Bayern Munich and goalkeeper Sven Ulreich have agreed on a contract extension until June 2021.

The all-action box-to-box powerhouse has always been regarded as one of world football's finest midfielders, with his sensational performances for his country during their back-to-back Copa America triumphs in 2015 and 2016 only serving to reinforce this widely-shared opinion.

With Bayern having tied up a summer deal for Schalke star Leon Goretzka, it has been suggested that Vidal will be moved on as the odd man out.

Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich will face Bayer Leverkusen in the German Cup semifinals in April after being handed another tough away tie in Monday's draw. He doesn't need to worry about his place.

The experienced coach, who is working on a short-term deal, said: "For me he is a fundamental player in our team".
