Inter Midfielder Arturo Vidal: “Flamengo A Marvellous Opportunity But We’re Still Negotiating”
Inter midfielder Arturo Vidal has stated that a move to Brazilian giants Flamengo should not yet be seen as done.
Speaking to the Brazilian version of sports broadcaster ESPN, as reported by FCInterNews, the 35-year-old did not deny that he likes the idea of making the switch to the Brazilian club, but was clear in denying that the move is guaranteed to happen.
Recent reports have suggested that Vidal is close to joining Flamengo this summer, with a departure from Inter having looked inevitable for some time and the Brazilians having registered an interest in him.
However, the Chilean was keen to stress that nothing is wrapped up just yet, and claimed that for now things are still in the negotiation phase rather than done.
Vidal is currently in Brazil, and it will remain to be seen whether the anticipated move to Flamengo happens or whether the talks fall through, with numerous other interested clubs waiting in the wings.
The midfielder called the move “A marvellous opportunity. I’m very happy to be here, even if at the moment we’re still in the negotiation phase.”
“Tonight I’ll be at the stadium, but only as a Flamengo fan,” he added, “we hope that we win.”
