Arturo Vidal

Jupp Heynckes says Arturo Vidal’s standing in Bayern Munich’s squad is not under threat despite the impending arrival of Leon Goretzka, reports sportskeeda.

“Arturo Vidal has a contract until 2019,” said Heynckes. “For me he is a fundamental player in our team.

“He is playing at a very good level, he’s just a class player, a player who is hugely experienced, a player who is on point when you need him.

“My opinion is that he is very important. I consider him a fantastic footballer. The player has to decide if he wants to stay here, and the club too.”
