Bayern Munich manager Carlo Ancelotti has revealed that the German champions are not willing to sell Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal at any price in the current transfer window.
"Vidal, there is no way," Ancelotti said in his press conference on Monday ahead of Tuesday's International Champions Cup match between his team and English Premier League champions Chelsea in Singapore.
"He is our player. I have a lot of confidence [in him]. I know there are rumours, [we are] used to having rumours. Vidal will stay with us, 100 per cent. I am confident about it."
Speaking about the likely exit of Portuguese youngster Renato Sanches, Ancelotti said: "I think the market ends on August 31st.
"In this moment, he is training with us.
"We have time to take a decision, it can be a possibility [that he leaves] and also there is a chance he stays with us for the season."
Ancelotti commended his former player at Real Madrid Alvaro Morata, who has just joined Chelsea for around £70m.
"He (Morata) is a fantastic striker, young. Chelsea have a made a good signing. He can help the team to be better," Ancelotti added.
"He is a complete striker. At Real Madrid, he played as a central striker, on the side sometimes and in all attacking positions.
"He is a really good signing. He can work a lot for the team also."
However Ancelotti hopes Antonio Conte does not help the London side win the Champions League.
"I hope that he doesn't! I cannot wish him to win the UCL. They will be competitive. Good signings and the team is a better than last year.
"Last year was a fantastic year. He changed the mentality of the team, style of play. Everything was okay. They are really competitive, [but] to win, I don't know."Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
