Vidal: It's up to Bayer...

Serie A target Arturo Vidal insists that German club Bayer Leverkusen will decide his future.

The Chilean is interesting a number of top sides given that he has just 12 months remaining on his contract with the Bundesliga outfit.

Bayern Munich are considered as front runners for his signature, but Napoli and Juventus are interested too.

"My agent has told me that he's spoken to a number of clubs, but it all depends on Bayer Leverkusen," the South American told the Corriere dello Sport.

"I have a year left on my contract and, as they were the first team to believe in me, I have total respect for them.

"Napoli? They are a great club. They battled for the title last season and they'll be in the Champions League too.

"Juventus are also a great club, despite the fact that they won't be playing in European competition next term."

Vidal, a 24-year-old midfielder, joined his present team in the summer of 2007 from Colo Colo.
