Inter target Arturo Vidal is one step closer to leaving Barcelona and joining the Nerazzurri, following on from complaints by the player about unpaid bonuses, according to a report in today’s paper edition of the Milano based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport.

The report details how the 32-year-old Chilean, through his lawyers, sent a fax to the Blaugrana at the start of December, complaining about unpaid bonuses from last season. Considering the total relationship breakdown between Vidal and the Catalan club, he’s seemingly one step closer to joining Antonio Conte in Milan in January.

Following on from the agreement between the player and the Milanese club, the report continues, the deal is moving ahead comfortably for Inter. CEO Beppe Marotta has offered Vidal the same salary he earns at Barcelona – €5 million net per season – as well as providing him with an extra year on his contract, until 2022. Due to this, the Chilean is willing to make the move over from Spain to Italy.

The final steps now, the report highlights, is an agreement with the Catalan club. Inter have offered a loan deal with a €12 million buy option attached, whilst Barcelona want a higher figure with an obligation to buy attached, if not a total sale. Once this final detail is sorted, the deal will be ready for completion.
