Arturo Vidal on His Way to a PL Club

Arturo Vidal has drops hints that he could move to Chelsea this January.

Arturo Vidal has fuelled the transfer rumour mill that links him with a move to Stamford Bridge this month. He did so by liking an Instagram post by the club.

Arturo Vidal has had a good working relationship with current Chelsea boss- Antonio Conte. He had played under Conte during his time at Juventus. He struck a chord with Conte in his tenure at the club and that partnership helped the Italian club pick up several major trophies.

Conte had instantly taken a liking to Vidal and subsequently altered the formation at Juventus in order to accommodate the Chilean midfielder. His comments before his move to Chelsea regarding Vidal only re-affirms the fact that Conte still has great admiration for the Chilean.

“Arturo Vidal said he’d take me to war with him? I’d take Vidal too,” he stated. “He’s an amazing player. I must admit at Juve, I found him hard to fit in.

“In my head, I wanted to play a 4-2-4 and 4-4-2, but seeing the intensity of Vidal getting up and down the pitch, I switched to 4-3-3 which then transformed into 3-5-2.

“He has extraordinary physical and technical attributes, if I get to coach him a little more it’d be fantastic. I want him on all my teams.”

Conte has ignited a Chelsea resurgence in the Premier League and led the team to the top of the table sitting on a comfortable 6-point lead. His transfer war chest seems only heavier after the hefty £60 million received for the sale of Oscar to the Chinese club- Shanghai SIPG.

Vidal’s arrival at Stamford Bridge would no doubt help bolster the already potent Chelsea defence and help guarantee another Premier League title. But Conte has reiterated the fact that it is increasingly difficult to make big-money signings in the January transfer window.

“In January it’s always very difficult to buy. Every team wants to keep their best players, they don’t want to sell,” states the Blues boss.

“But we are trying to think of the best way to face the rest of the season, for sure.

“We are looking at our squad and then we will take the best decision. As I said before, it’s not easy in the window.”

Arturo Vidal has consistently performed at a high level for any club he plays for. He has showcased the rare talent of adapting to any style of play in any league at a relatively faster pace. His arrival in the Premier League is guaranteed to make PL managers nervous.
