Vidal wants to join Boca Juniors

Gary Medel said his compatriot Arturo Vidal is eager to join Boca Juniors. The future of the Barcelona midfielder is uncertain, and he has been connected with several European clubs. Still, his Chilean international team-mate made a fantastic announcement about his preference to move to Argentina. “Vidal would like to play for Boca Juniors either with me or without me,” Gary told journalists. “He loves Boca and watches them on social networks. It is the only team that he follows in Argentina, and he is dying to go. Boca Juniors have a following in Europe that you can’t possibly imagine.” When asked whether he will be potentially linking himself with Vidal at Boca Juniors in the future, Medel was coy.

“I have a two-year contract at Bologna, and I hope to respect it,” said the Chile international. Medel often plays with Boca sporting director Juan Roman Riquelme, once a week. He suggested that I should return to the club. I was very young when I was there for the first time and did not appreciate how unique Boca was, and it would be a dream to return, “Medel added. He also talked about two other Chilean team-mates, Mauricio Isla of Fenerbahçe and Charles Aranguiz of Bayer Leverkusen. “I could see Isla at Boca, I gave his number to Roman so they could talk, so I hope it will happen, and I would also recommend Charles Aranguiz – from what I know, they had spoken to him in January.”
