Chilean midfielder, Arutro Vidal has made it clear that he wants to stay put at FC Barcelona, despite rumours that the club is plotting to cash in on him in the upcoming summer transfer window as they look to raise funds and make room for new signings.
The 33-year-old midfielder revealed he wants to remain at FC Barcelona. "I am very happy and comfortable in Barcelona and of course I want to stay here. I am also feeling in better shape than ever. This is a good group and I have got great friends in the dressing room," he told journalist Mario Velasco [via Daily Mail].
Vidal might be among a number of players Barcelona could be selling in the summer, but the former Bayern midfielder has stated he feels physically better and is ready for what is to come in the Champions League and La Liga. He said, "Physically I feel better than ever. I have never had so much time to prepare myself. We have a special [training] plan that helps me lengthen my career for as long as possible."
"I am ready for what’s to come both in the Champions League and in La Liga. We are top of the league and we have a great chance of going through in the Champions League," he added.
"There are two months of football left to be played and in that time we have to give everything," Vidal concluded as Barcelona remain the favourites to win La Liga. Barcelona are also aiming for European glory this season with the club holding away goal advantage against Napoli after the first leg of their round-of-16 clash in Naples ended in a 1-1 draw.
