Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has hinted that he would consider joining Chelsea should Antonio Conte be named as manager in the summer.
The current Italy boss has been widely tipped to take the job, which will become vacant when Guus Hiddink leaves as interim manager at the end of the season.
According to the London Evening Standard, Conte is keen to make Vidal one of his first signings as Chelsea manager.
The Italian bought Vidal from Bayer Leverkusen while he was in charge of Juventus in 2011.
When asked about him potentially joining Chelsea with Conte, Vidal is quoted as saying: “I have always said if I go to war I would take Conte with me. We will see what happens.”
The Chile international joined Bayern from Juve last year.
