Doors are wide open for Inter to sign Arturo Vidal. Coach Ernesto Valverde: "He was important, now there's more competition..."
“Coutinho and Vidal? I think they are exactly like the others. They came back late because of Copa America and have to get back in shape.”
That was Ernesto Valverde after the 4-0 win over Napoli yesterday. On the former Juve and Bayern Munich midfielder, Inter are very interested because it is well-known that the Chilean is a transfer target that has character, international and ability to score goals. All three attributes that would be very useful in the midfield of Inter.
From Barcelona, over the last few weeks, there have been signals that the club is willing to let him go and it is clear that Vidal would happily reunited with Antonio Conte, his mentor at the time of Juventus. This could be a bargain at the end of the market with favorable terms.
“Last year, Coutinho and Vidal were important, but now there is more competition and they have to fight harder to playing time,” said coach of Barcelona. Almost like a warning which can soon turn into a one-way ticket out of Spain.
