Arturo Vidal gives up a fortune to join Inter Milan

Arturo Vidal is on the verge of completing his move to Inter Milan although there are only minor details that need to be resolved as well as the player passing a medical.

After reaching an agreement with Barcelona over the amount owed on his deal, Vidal will soon be an Inter player.

Media reports confirm the Chile international footballer gave up €6.5m in order to push through his move to Inter.

The move was inspired by Antonio Conte’s presence at Inter.

According to the Italian outlet ‘Tuttosport’, “Vidal has given up €6.5m in order to rejoin Conte”. ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ claim both the Vidal and Luis Suarez deals are being held up by minor details.

Whilst those transfers are yet to be completed, both are expected to leave Barça very soon. The Chilean will give up the money owed on the final year of his contract with Barcelona in order to force through his move to Inter.

This means Vidal is likely to leave in a deal structured similar to the one agreed with Sevilla for Rakitic.

The Chilean is expected to fly out to Italy soon in order to pass a medical and be presented to the media there. The chance of joining up with Conte is a key factor behind the move.

‘Gazzetta dello Sport claims the 33-year-old midfielder has agreed to forgo the money owed on his contract with Barça, although some reports in Italy claim Vidal wants the €2.4m owed from bonuses accrued.
