Cape Town - Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal says he has no intentions of leaving the Bundesliga champions, following reports of a reunion with former manager Antonio Conte at Chelsea next season.

Despite his contract with the Bavarians running until June 2019, the former Juventus star has been linked with a move away from the German outfit recently, with Chelsea said to be his next destination.

Vidal joined Bayern from Juventus in a €31 million transfer fee at the beginning of the 2015/16 Bundesliga campaign, and has been a regular starter with 30 appearances in all competitions.

But despite his admiration for the current Italy manager, the Chile international insisted that he intends to see out his current contract with Die Roten.

"I am very happy here," he told BioBio. "I have to think about my family and I still have time on my contract."

Conte and Vidal enjoyed huge success together at Juve from 2011 to 2014 and won three consecutive Serie A titles in the process.
