Inter could get a discount on the €4 million payment needed to offload midfielder Arturo Vidal now that his move to Flamengo is right on the verge of happening.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, who report that only the signature is needed on the 35-year-old’s move to the Brazilian giants, and that the Nerazzurri may not have to pay the full amount specified in his deal to avoid keeping him another season.
Vidal’s departure has always looked all but inevitable, with the Nerazzurri not keen to keep him as their highest earner for another season.
The Chilean’s two-year contract expires this summer, but contains an option on the club’s part to extend his deal for one more season on improved wages, but which they can avoid triggering by paying a €4 million severance.
In the meantime, Vidal has settled on Flamengo as his next club and is ready to make the move official, and he could accept less than the full €4 million amount in the interest of sealing his Nerazzurri exit in a timely fashion to join the Brazilians.
