Inter loan bid for Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal

Italian giants Inter have launched a season-long loan move for Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to reports.

According to FcInterNews, the Milanese club have received positive signals from the Catalan giants and Vidal himself is open to the move.

The Chilean looked set for the Nerazzurri last summer until the Blaugrana swooped in late to sign him from Bayern Munich.

Vidal, has previously consistently reiterated his desire to stay at the Camp Nou - where he played an important role in winning the title last season.

However, the arrival of Dutch international Frenkie De Jong at the club could push him further down the pecking order in Ernesto Valverde's side, and Inter boss Antonio Conte is waiting to make an offer should he look to move on from Catalonia.

With two years still to run on his contract, Vidal will not be a cheap option, and the Blaugrana are likely to demand in the region of €25m for the 32-year old, if Conte wants to be reunited with the player he won three league titles with at Juventus.

“I would follow him everywhere, even in war,” he was once quoted as saying about the Coach.
