Chilean and Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal has been a subject of transfer speculation, and his former Boss Antonio Conte has been the one trailing him after the Italian took over the helm of affairs at Stamford Bridge this season. According to report from 'The Sun', Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will made a swift move for the Chilean as he seeks to make a blue print on the Premier League. His presence so far in the League has been felt as he leads the League table with six points going into the new year. Antonio Conte brought Vidal from Bayern Leverkusen 2011 to Juventus  when he was charge of the Old Ladies, and made Vidal a Man of steel as Juventus dominated the Seria A for three consecutive years under Conte. It is believed Conte will launch an initial offer of £34m for the midfield maestro, but Bayern values their star man so much and will hold out for a fee close to £40m. Oscar who has been sold to Chinese league for £60m, Conte is looking forward to fully utilise the money and has said the money realised from Oscar sale will be used wisely. Vidal has said earlier before the season started as the Italian Boss took over at Stamford Bridge saying; "I have always said if I would go to war, I will go with Conte, but lets see how things go."
