Last Tuesday Arturo vidal He went to the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper facilities at the same time as his teammates. But he did not get to jump to the grass to train with them. He just said goodbye to everyone and headed back home, convinced that his move to Inter was a matter of hours.
24 hours later, on Wednesday, he was seen running through the streets of Barcelona in order not to lose the point of physical form and while he waited to close the operation with the “Nerazzurri” as soon as possible. And yesterday, Thursday, finally, the Chilean returned to the training sessions of the Barça first team, with which he practiced with absolute normality.
And the fact is that the officialization of his transfer to Inter continues to delay in time. With all the fringes of the operation closed, in which Barça will receive a minimum fixed amount and others depending on the objectives achieved by the player with whom it will be his new club, his departure is pending only on the departure of Diego Godin of the interista group.
The Uruguayan central of the Italian team does not enter into the plans of Antonio Conte and its destination seems to be Cagliari. However, the departure of the former Atlético de Madrid chief is also being delayed and with it, the closure of the ‘Vidal operation’, whom everyone in Italy gives as a new interista player in any case.
Vidal, after reaching an agreement with Barça regarding the amounts to be received (the Chilean intended to collect the full contract, an end that the club did not accept because he still had a full year of commitment left), he had also closed with Inter the details of an agreement for two seasons. The terms are maintained, but the times are delayed, although nobody expects Vidal to end up in a club other than Inter.
