ESPN: Barca reject Inter loan offer from Vidal, will only accept permanent transfer
- The Nerazzurri reportedly wanted to sign Arturo on a loan deal.
- Their coach Conte is a big fan of the Chilean and is determined to land him.
- Blaugrana will reportedly only accept a permanent transfer.
According to a recent report from ESPN, Barcelona have reportedly rejecter Inter Milan's latest loan offer for Arturo Vidal. The Nerazzurri's coach Antonio Conte is a big fan of the Chilean and insists on his arrival. The two have previously worked together at Juventus. The same source claims that Arturo is calm about his future.
Allegedly, the Catalans don't consider letting the player leave on loan and only accept a permanent transfer. Nonetheless, they're ready to offload the 32-year-old as the midfield is already overbooked.
Previously, Diario Sport reported that Barcelona could let Vidal join Inter for 20 million euros. The Nerazzurri allegedly contacted his agent Fernando Felicevich at once but their offer was rejected by the player himself.
Last season, Vidal accumulated 2.744 minutes in 53 appearances for Barcelona and scored three goals. He was mostly used as a substitute or a back-up midfielder. At first, the Chilean couldn't accept such a minor role but soon got used to his situation and is now said to be perfectly happy with it.
What would be the right price to sell Vidal?
