Arturo Vidal has insisted Barcelona is the club he wants to fight for his Champions League title with, calming rumours that the former Juventus and Bayern Munich midfielder could be on his way out of the Nou Camp.
The Chilean midfielder has only started once in the Catalan side’s opening eight games of the La Liga season and is yet to complete 90 minutes, fuelling speculation he could join former boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.
However, Vidal has insisted he will fight for the European title – which has so far evaded him – in Spain.
‘If the coach or the team tells me to leave, I’ll gladly do that, I don’t mind,’ Vidal told Sport.
‘But I believe I still have a lot more to give here. I still need to lift the Champions League.
‘I’m happy. I came here to be an important member of the squad as I have at every other team in my career. I’m not here just to change clubs every time the transfer window opens.
‘Barcelona is a team that needs to win the Champions League, win the Copa del Rey and retain the league.
‘I know it’s going to be difficult but we have a very hungry squad.’
Vidal is currently on international duty with Chile, with matches against Columbia and Guinea to come this international break.
When he returns, Barcelona face a trip to Eibar, as they look to put the club’s worst start to a league season for 25 years behind them by making it four wins in a row.
