The Chile star says that reports of him leaving the Allianz Arena are "just rumours" and has reaffirmed that he has a desire to stay in Germany

Arturo Vidal has no intention of a reunion with Antonio Conte at Chelsea because he says there is no reason for him to leave Bayern Munich.

Robben: No club can top Bayern

The Chile international spent three years playing under Conte's tutelage at Juventus, with the club winning the Serie A title in each season.

Conte is reportedly already in the process of drawing up a list of transfer targets at Stamford Bridge for the close-season and there have been suggestions  that Vidal - who swapped Turin for Bayern Munich in 2015 - is high on his list.

However, the 29-year-old sees his long-term future in the Bundesliga and not in the Premier League.

"These are just rumours that are emerging quickly," he told Sport Bild.

"After all, I played three very successful years under coach Conte at Juventus.

"But there is no reason for me to leave Bayern. I wear this jersey with pride. I feel happy, my wife feels happy, and the children are happy. And I still have big goals in Munich."
