Vidal, who has previous for holding lavish bashes in Chile, spoke to the press as he turned up for training ahead of Chile's upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers to dispute the claims.

He said: "I do not know what they are talking about. I totally disagree. 

"I come to Chile, my home country, to play for the national team. They (the press) are just trying to dirty my name. Today I will speak at a press conference (to deny the accusations)."


Vidal is said to have partied with former Juventus team mate Paul Pogba back in February 2016 after I Bianconeri's draw with Bayern Munich in the Champions League, with the soiree carrying on until the early hours of Wednesday morning.
