Ancelotti: 'Arturo Vidal going nowhere'

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti insists that Arturo Vidal is not for sale this summer, but refuses to rule out an exit for AC Milan target Renato Sanches.

Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has reiterated that Arturo Vidal "is not moving" this summer despite ongoing speculation over his future.

Vidal has been heavily linked with Inter Milan - whom Bayern face in a pre-season friendly on Thursday - after manager Luciano Spalletti reportedly made the Chilean his primary transfer target.

However, Ancelotti insists that he is "happy" with his current squad, although he refused to rule out a move for Renato Sanches, who is thought to be close to joining AC Milan.

"I am happy with the squad and satisfied with the players we have. We can have a fantastic season. I am happy with how we played against Chelsea, especially the performances of [Corentin] Tolisso and James [Rodriguez] as it seemed like they had played with us for a long time. They have improved really quickly and already know our style of play and are doing a good job," he told reporters.

"Anyone who thinks Vidal is leaving is wrong. He is not moving. Renato is with us all the way through pre-season and then we will make a decision. He played well against Chelsea and I hope he can continue to improve. There are good things about this tour and we could have had more players after Arjen Robben and Jerome Boateng didn't make the trip, and we picked up a couple of injuries.

"The games against Arsenal and Chelsea were really good, we didn't play well against AC Milan but in the end the condition of the players has improved. We have one week to prepare for the German Super Cup. We will not be at 100% like last year but we have a chance to win and we want to win.

"We can learn a lot from this trip and have built up into good shape, which is important because we have endured tough conditions to train and play here in Asia. It will be much easier to run with 15 degrees Celsius less back in Germany."

Bayern will face Inter tomorrow at The National Stadium in Singapore for their final International Champions Cup clash.
