Antonio Conte could get Arturo Vidal in January, as Barcelona reportedly propose a loan with preferential treatment for Inter stars Lautaro Martinez, Milan Skriniar and Stefano Sensi.
The Inter coach, who managed Vidal at Juve from 2011 to 2014, is looking for midfield reinforcements after complaining about a lack of squad depth, and doesn’t see a future for Borja Valero or Matias Vecino at the club.
Vidal, for his part, has complained about a lack of playing time at the Camp Nou and wants to move on, speaking fondly of his time with Conte.
According to Tuttosport, Inter and Barcelona are in talks over a January loan deal for Vidal, with Barcelona having an option on one of Inter’s ‘crown jewels’, in the form of Sensi, Skriniar and especially Lautaro Martinez next summer.
Argentina international Lautaro Martinez is seen as the ideal heir to Luis Suarez and has repeatedly been linked with a move to Camp Nou, even more so after scoring there in the Champions League for Inter this month.
Vidal made 124 league appearances for the Bianconeri, scoring 35 goals in a four-year spell in Turin. He joined Barca in the summer of 2018, winning La Liga in his first season in Spain.
