Inter Hoping Arturo Vidal Reconsiders Boca Juniors Approach, Italian Media Report
Inter are hoping that midfielder Arturo Vidal will reconsider a move away to Argentine giants Boca Juniors, with the 34-year-old not having a place at the Giuseppe Meazza.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that the Chilean is far down in the pecking order in manager Simone Inzaghi’s plans, and could be convinced to leave for a club where he has a more significant role.
The Nerazzurri have been trying to offload Vidal for much of the summer, with the midfielder’s high wages and injury problems combined with the fact he is not considered a major contributor by the new coach making him unwanted.
So far no interest has come in from major European clubs, and the player has turned down the possibility of a move back to South America.
In any event, South American clubs have struggled to make any serious offers given that his €6.5 million net annual salary would be very difficult for any interested teams to seriously meet.
However, the Nerazzurri are still hoping that the Chilean will start to consider offers in light of the fact that he is not set to have a significant role at the Giuseppe Meazza this season.
To this end, they are willing to start talks on playing their part, financially or otherwise, to facilitate the player accepting an offer from one of the clubs who have so far only tentatively expressed interest to his agent, with Boca among the likeliest destinations.
