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.
