Vidal not leaving Barcelona this summer

Although it was already considered a done deal by some that Arturo Vidal would be part of Barcelona’s negotiating strategy to acquire Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain before the transfer window closes in two weeks, according to the Mirror, the Chilean midfielder will not be going anywhere this summer.

The 32-year-old came to Barcelona on a three-year contract in the summer of 2018, but despite his moderate success and due to the fact that Barca have a number of midfielders to fall back on they are now thinking of disposing of him.

Vidal was reportedly reluctant to leave the club at the time the speculations about his possible move started to swirl this summer, and it was suggested that if the move were imminent, he would much rather go to Inter Milan following the appointment of Antonio Conte in May, his head coach at Juventus years before.

Now it looks like the Chilean will get his way and a chance to fight for his place in the Barcelona team once again.
