Arturo vidal He is already a former player of Barcelona, once he Inter de Milan has confirmed his signing. The Chilean returns to Italy five years after leaving Juventus to spend three seasons at Bayern and two at the Blaugrana team.

The Chilean leaves the team culé victim of the screening that has undertaken Ronald Koeman. Always on the wing, both with Ernesto Valverde and with Quique Setien, his high profile, his character and the doubts he has generated in the culé scheme have made him the second to run out of space in the new Barça after the return of Ivan Rakitic to Seville.

As in the case of the Croatian, Inter have paid an almost laughable price for the midfielder. A ‘symbolic’ signing of 500,000 euros plus variables, which are far from the 20 million paid by the club chaired by Josep María Bartomeu two summers ago.

The reason for this cheap sale, in addition to the fact that Koeman does not have him, is to try to loosen the pressure on Barça’s accounts, since Vidal’s file was of almost 7 million. The player has renounced that amount, which he was entitled to for the remaining year of his contract.

His signing for the ‘Nerazzurri’ has been one of the topics of the week, but it was not until Sunday evening when Vidal traveled to Milan to close his signing.

Antonio Conte it is done with a strong footballer, of physical cut and little given to the great technical bows. Arturo Vidal himself was very critical of Barça’s obsession to remain tied to the cruyffista style, something that has not worked for them in the last season and that ended with the humiliating 2-8, with the Chilean international himself on the field.
