Inter will pay midfielder Arturo Vidal €4 million in order to avoid activating an option to extend his contract for one more season.

This according to Italian news outlet Libero, who report that the Nerazzurri are close to agreeing a severance arrangement with the Chilean whereby they will pay out the amount to not trigger the option to automatically extend his current deal.

Vidal signed with Inter from Barcelona in the summer of 2020 on a two-year deal, but the contract also included an option on the club’s end to extend his deal by one further season, which would be automatically triggered unless they pay the €4 million fee.

The Nerazzurri have no plans to keep Vidal in the squad for next season and are negotiating the terms of his exit at the moment, and should do so per the fee specified by the contract.

The 35-year-old has offers from the likes of Flamengo and Boca Juniors for next season.
