Chelsea are ahead of Manchester United in the race to sign Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to Standard Media.

Vidal will need little introduction. For the best part of a decade, he has been considered one of the best midfielders on the planet. The Chilean has been instrumental in domestic triumphs for both Juventus and Bayern Munich. He is the sort of player that would walk into any midfield in the world.

It is claimed in the report that he will be allowed to leave the Allianz Arena on a free transfer at the season’s end, providing any potential suitors with a unique opportunity to sign a truly world-class player without paying a penny.

It is also believed that Chelsea have the edge over their rivals due to Antonio Conte’s relationship with Vidal. The pair worked together during their time in Turin, and Vidal is thought to be keen on reuniting with the Italian. This is one to keep an eye on.
