Inter Milan near the signing of Barcelona midfielder

Barcelona midfielder close to signing for Serie A side, Inter Milan.

Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal’s time at Barcelona looks to be over as multiple reports are suggesting that he will be moving to Serie A. According to Mundo Deportivo, the former Juventus midfielder is reportedly going to land in Italy in the coming days to complete his transfer to Antonio Conte’s Inter Milan. Trusted and top tier journalists like Fabrizio Romano have also confirmed this piece of news on twitter.

Vidal was not exactly a groundbreaking signing for the Catalans but he did his job for a good period of time. The Chilean served his time at the Nou Camp in a smooth manner as he filled in the role of a box to box midfielder. The 33-year-old arrived in Spain in 2018 under former manager Ernesto Valverde, and since then he has managed plenty of appearances for the Catalan giants.

Having said that, the former Bayern Munich midfielder looks to be done at La Liga as his move to Milan looks certain. The South American star has played for European giants like Juventus, Munich, Barca and now according to reports, he will be moving to Inter. Vidal truly has played for the most elite clubs in European football.

Ronald Koeman does not intend to keep Arturo Vidal around for his plans at the Nou Camp according to various reports. The Dutchman did not hand Vidal a start in a friendly against Nastic two days ago as the La Liga giants won the game 3-1. The Chilean international did not seem bothered by that fact as he comfortably posted on social media after the game.

Arturo is currently 33 and a move to the Serie A will be perfect to see out his days in top-flight football. Antonio Conte is reportedly looking to sell Christian Eriksen and Marcelo Brozovic which could mean a guaranteed starting lineup for the Chilean midfielder at Inter.
