Ex-Inter Midfielder Benoit Cauet: “Nerazzurri Should Sell Vidal & Maybe Vecino, Sensi Deserves To Stay”

Inter should consider getting rid of Arturo Vidal and Matias Vecino in the summer, according to the Nerazzurri’s former midfielder Benoit Cauet.

Vidal will reportedly be fighting for his future at the club over the next month, with Inter keen to offload his hefty €5 million annual salary (due to rise to €6.5 million next season).

Marseille, Galatasaray and Flamengo have all been linked with the Chilean international, who has failed to repay Antonio Conte’s faith in him since joining from Barcelona.

“Vidal is 33 and earns a lot of money, so if Inter had the chance I’d sell him,” Cauet, who made 149 appearances in a five-year stint at Inter, told Gazzetta dello Sport today.

“He’s proven himself as a great player throughout his career and he never gives up, but time passes for everyone.

“Conte knows him inside out but this isn’t the Vidal we saw at Juventus, not least because of his age.

“Vidal could have given more to Inter and as things stand, the Nerazzurri could afford to move him on while saving the money on his salary.”

Vecino has made just four substitute appearances for Inter this season, having taken a long time to recover from surgery last summer.

Cauet thinks the Uruguay international could still be useful for Antonio Conte’s side, but admits it might make sense on one condition to move him on.

“He’s a great player who hasn’t found much space in the team for various reasons,” the Frenchman said of Vecino.

“He could leave but only if Inter can find someone better than him.”

Cauet encouraged Inter to keep hold of Stefano Sensi, meanwhile, saying of the Italian: “He has absolute quality and could become a high-level player.

“It’s impossible to judge him on this season, I’d give him another try next season.

“Sensi showed great potential last year and the future could be his.”

Cauet also urged Christian Eriksen to make another step with his performances during Inter’s Serie A title run-in.

“He’s giving a response now with his performances and the club are being repaid for keeping him in January, but from someone like Christian I expect even more,” he added.

“Eriksen took a while to settle in because everything is different in Italy: the language, the style of play, the mentality…”
