Arturo Vidal has named Bayern Munich the best club in the world and has revealed he wants to retire at the club.
The Chilean midfielder has become an integral part of the Bavarian club, since joining from Juventus at the beginning of the season.
Bayern Munich are looking to secure the BuLi this weekend when they play Mochengladbach, and play Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday as they target a European and domestic treble.
And Vidal feels they are capable of winning everything this term and has no plans to leave the club before he hangs up his boots.
“Thanks to all the effort I have put in over time I’m now at the best team in the world,” Vidal told ESPN FC. “I hope to remain here until I retire.
“Now I know my team-mates. We are more than a group, we are like a family, and this gives me a lot of confidence.
“At first it was difficult because I came from a different style of football, I had to get used to things, I had to adapt to a new team, new players. But I knew that at some point I would feel comfortable and be able to show everyone who I am as a player, like I showed everyone at Juventus. That moment has come.”
The 28-year-old has already won titles with Chile and Juve but, with a Bundesliga crown set to be added to the collection, the Champions League remains the one piece of silverware missing for the midfielder, who is sure his side can beat the likes of Atletico, Manchester City and Real Madrid to the title this term.
“I believe it’s the most important title for a player, and I hope this year I can win it and continue to grow,” he said.
“I think Bayern is the favourites, because of the players we have, because of the manager we have, because of what he is doing, because Bayern always gives teams trouble in this stage of the Champions League.
“It’s difficult for any team to win against Bayern.”
