Arturo Vidal will be at the centre of a tug of war between AC Milan and Inter Milan next summer, according to reports.
Italian news outlet Tuttosport claims the European heavyweights are both vying for the Chilean’s signature.
Vidal, who played in Italy for four years with Juventus before moving to Bayern Munich, will only have one year remaining on his current deal next summer.
That may prompt Bayern to recoup most of their £33m investment from 2015.
The 30-year-old, played 124 Serie A matches, scoring 35 goals and providing 22 assists.
The report also claims that Chinese-owned Inter were prepared to bid £54m for Vidal, but had to abandon their plans after the Chinese government clamped down on foreign investments.
The Italian club were reportedly planning to offer the Chile international a contract worth £6.4m-a-year to make him their highest paid player.
While Milan will also bid for Vidal if they qualify for the Champions League next season.
Vidal is currently on international duty with Chile and featured as they lost 3-0 to Paraguay on Thursay.
After the game he suggested that he may consider retiring from international football after the media treatment he has received back home.
After the game, Vidal tweeted: “Now they must be happy those tetchy [people] we have in our country!!!
“But don’t worry, each time I’m closer to leaving.”
