Exclusive, Vidal’s SMS triggers transfer rumors


The Chilean midfielder is ready for a new adventure. Italy would be his preferred destination

VIDAL INTER MILAN BAYERN MUNICH / Arturo Vidal would love to return to Italy. The former Juventus' midfielder seems to be unhappy in Germany and he is pushing to leave Bayern Munich as soon as possible. The Chilean has been linked with several clubs but his primary desire would be to play for an Italian club again. 

After his marvelous performances at Juventus from 2011 to 2015, the player was purchased by the German giant. In the current season, he made 19 appearances and scored two goals and two assists. Vidal's contract is set to expire on June 30, 2019, so Bayern Munich needs to find a solution as soon as possible. Although the German side would like to keep the player on its roster, the midfielder doesn't seem to be willing to extend his commitment to the club.

Rumors about Vidal's possible move to Italy were triggered after an SMS that, reportedly, the player has sent to friends. Calciomercato.it exclusively found out that in that message, the Chilean informed his friends to be ready to return to Italy “soon“.

Vidal ready for another Italian journey. Inter and Milan interested in the midfielder

Both clubs of Milan seem to be interested in the player. His technique and temperament could boost the ambitions of Montella's and Spalletti's teams. Although Milan would love to sign Vidal, the club is still waiting for UEFA final assessment on the voluntary agreement presented by Fassone just a few days ago. In light of that, the club shouldn't be able to spend more at least until the next summer transfer window.

Inter, instead, is seriously thinking to strengthen its midfield. Arturo Vidal's current price-tag is €19 million. His overall evaluation decreased by 21% due to the imminent expiration of his contract. Spalletti would be happy to coach the Chilean, a player that could be the right piece to complete a very beautiful puzzle that the Tuscan coach is shaping. Inter is chasing Napoli at the top of the standings and Vidal would be a great addition.
