Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal is ignoring ongoing speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea as he is "focused" on winning the treble this season.

Arturo Vidal has insisted that he is "fully focused" on Bayern Munich following rumoured interest from Premier League champions Chelsea.

Bayern boss Jupp Heynckes moved to play down speculation of an impending transfer at the weekend after talk emerged of the Blues preparing a £32.5m bid.

Chile international Vidal is ignoring the rumours, too, as he has his eyes on a potential Bundesliga, DFB-Pokal and Champions League treble in the second half of the campaign.

"Yes, I've heard about it, but I'm fully focused on the season with Bayern and I'm only looking day-to-day," he told Sport. "We're a great team and we have big goals. We want to win every trophy. That's what my focus is."

Vidal, who has previously worked under Chelsea boss Antonio Conte at Juventus, is under contract at the Allianz Arena until the end of next season.
