The Chilean has started only three La Liga games this season.
In a recent interview, Barcelona player Arturo Vidal opened up on his future and revealed that he could consider leaving the La Liga giants, if he no longer feels important at the club.
Vidal moved to Barcelona from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich in 2018 August, for a reported transfer fee of €18 million. Though his arrival at the Camp Nou was a surprise to many, he cemented his place within the first-team with a series of virtuoso performances in the 2018-19 season. So far, the former Juventus and Bayer Leverkusen ace has played 66 matches for the Blaugrana, scoring seven times and assisting another eight goals.
However, despite his fine form, the 32-year-old is not a guaranteed starter under manager Ernesto Valverde – in fact, he has made only three La Liga starts this season, and as mentioned earlier, has suggested that he could move on if he continues to face a lack of game time.
“I would like to be here forever, but I have to be objective and live day to day. If in December or at the end of the season I do not feel important here, I will look for a solution and expand my horizons [in order] to be important,” Vidal told MARCA.
“There are always offers, but for the moment I am focused on Barcelona, working and helping my team as much as possible,” he added.
Vidal has slipped behind close-season arrival Frenkie de Jong and Ivan Rakitic in the pecking order at Barca, who lead rivals Real Madrid on goal difference at the top of the La Liga table.
