It looks like Barca might lose two midfielders this winter!
According to Turin-based outlet Tuttosport, Barcelona’s midfielder Arturo Vidal has ‘said yes’ to Inter Milan’s offer. Now, the only remaining thing would be for the Nerazzurri to reach an agreement with the Catalans.
The same outlet reports that Inter’s boar are optimistic about the upcoming negotiations with the Catalans. The two clubs reportedly have a good relationship.
Until now, Blaugrana kept insisting on the €20m price tag, but Vidal’s willingness to reunite with his former coach Antonio Conte and his formal ‘yes’ to the club could significantly lower his price. The Serie A club are believed to have offered €12m in their first official bid for the Chile international.
The Chilean is Barca’s current fourth-best goalscorer with five goals. He rarely starts but Ernesto Valverde keeps counting on him because of Vidal’s unique qualities and physicality.
So far this season, Vidal has featured in 19 games in all competitions. There is no urgency in his sale and Barca would like to keep the Chilean unless a big-money offer arrives. Besides Arturo, Carles Alena could also leave Camp Nou, with Real Betis being his most likely destination.
