Arturo Vidal established himself as a super-sub for Barcelona this season, but Chilean wants more than just cameo appearances.

This led many teams into bidding war for Vidal this January.

However, Ernesto Valverde declines the option of the midfielder leaving.

Barca boss spoke in the press conference yesterday, saying:

“We’re not thinking about him going to another team,’ Valverde said, quoting Daily Mail.

“We’ll see tomorrow [Thursday]. In principle he’s with us. No clues.

“We don’t pay any attention to other clubs being interested in our players.”

Blaugrana will want to keep Arturo at least until June.

Carles Alena left on loan to Betis, and they can’t afford to lose another midfielder before the summer.
