Italian Media Outline Why Offloading Arturo Vidal’s This Summer Would Hurt Inter Financially

Inter are exploring their options with regard to midfielder Arturo Vidal, with the club considering terminating the Chilean’s contract but aware of financial problems with doing so.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that among other issues, terminating the player’s contract would mean that the tax benefits of the Growth Decree would disappear and the club would have to pay back full taxes on all of his wages from the first day he signed for Inter.

Vidal is not wanted at the Nerazzurri going forward, with the 34-year-old’s age, injury record, and high salary leading the club to hope that they can offload him in the summer.

However, despite some interest in the Chilean from a number of clubs, no offers have come forward from teams able to cover his high salary, even if he is to leave on a free transfer.

The possibility of terminating Vidal’s contract has come up, and would allow the Nerazzurri to avoid paying out the wages remaining on the remaining year of his deal.

However, it could be difficult to convince the midfielder to agree to a termination, with the player thought to want to stay, and the club could have to give up severance pay as an incentive.

In addition to this potential financial hit, the Nerazzurri would be on the hook for new taxes on his wages from last season were his two-year contract not to be completed, something which would not be the case if he were transferred to another club.

It remains to be seen if the offloading of the Chilean’s high wages will be worth these financial setbacks, or if the club will find some other solution.
