Vidal nears Sevilla return

Barcelona defender Aleix Vidal could be set for a return to former club Sevilla, according to Mundo Deportivo.

The Andalusians are close to concluding a deal to sell Joaquin Correa to Lazio and his departure may signal a return to the Sanchez Pizjuan for out-of-favour Vidal, who appeared for more than 45 minutes just six times last season.

Barca are already understood to have told Los Rojiblancos they want at least €10m for the 28-year-old, although Sevilla feel that with the Catalans’ need to offload players this summer they could prise him away from the Camp Nou for around €7m.

Vidal joined Barca from Sevilla in 2015 for €17m and would look favourably upon a move back to the club where he made 31 appearances in the 2014-15 campaign, after arriving from Almeria.
