Reported Newcastle United target Arturo Vidal has spoken out about his future amid speculation linking the Barcelona man with a departure from the Camp Nou.

Italian website ITA Sport Press claimed last month that the Chile international midfielder is a target for Newcastle’s prospective new owners.

Chronicle Live have reported that the Premier League’s owner’s and director’s test is at the final stages and any takeover announcement will be left to the would-be owners and Mike Ashley.

With the prospect of Newcastle having a huge transfer budget should the deal be done, a host of high-profile players and coaches have been linked with St James’ Park.
