Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal revealed how he is willing to leave the Spanish club if he doesn’t earn enough playing time by January or next summer in an interview yesterday with Spanish broadcaster TV3, but the words weren’t meant for Inter, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.
The report details how the 32-year-old Chilean’s words were more to open himself up to the possibility of leaving the Blaugrana in January, allowing any interested parties to consider him as a transfer option. Whilst this would include the Nerazzurri, coach Antonio Conte appreciates the Nerazzurri’s position on the situation and hasn’t called for Vidal any further.
The Nerazzurri have already told Conte that they don’t want to acquire Vidal, the report continues, due to both his age and for economic reasons. The Nerazzurri are looking to acquire players in January that are either cheap options, like Olivier Giroud, or investments for the future.
