The agent of Manchester United target Arturo Vidal has reportedly travelled to Italy to meet with Inter Milan to hear their offer for the Chilean midfielder.
Chilean international Vidal’s agent Fernando Felicevich has reportedly travelled to Italy as rumours surround Vidal’s exit from Barcelona.
The rumours were sparked after he saw his minutes drastically reduced since his arrival to the Spanish giant and at one point told local media: “I am not happy, but I have to sort this out.
“I will work to get my place. I have been part of the starting line up my entire life, this is the first time (I am not).”
Local media said that Felicevich is currently in Italy and speculated he is there to sit down with members of the Inter Milan’s front office to hear an offer for the midfielder.
Manchester United and Inter Milan are the two clubs that are making the strongest bid for Vidal, 32, during this transfer window despite Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde, 55, showing complete confidence in Vidal staying at Barcelona saying he is “counting on” him.
Vidal sued Barcelona after he claiming they failed to pay him 2.4 million EUR (2.05 million GBP) in bonuses for matches played, reaching the quarter-finals in the Champions League and winning La Liga last year.
Local media said that Barcelona are refusing to pay as they take the move as a push to exit the club during this winter’s transfer window. The lawsuit is ongoing
The clubs have until 31st January when the winter transfer window closes to reach an agreement.
