Inter to sign Arturo Vidal from Barcelona for just €500,000

Inter have agreed a €500,000 fee with Barcelona for midfielder Arturo Vidal, according to RAC1.

Vidal, 33, is part of a major overhaul at Barcelona under new coach Ronald Koeman.

Like Ivan Rakitic, who joined Sevilla for an initial €1.5m, Barcelona sacrificed a big transfer fee to be rid of their high salaries.

The same is expected to happen with Luis Suarez, who Barca are trying to negotiate a settlement with.

Much like the Rakitic deal, the fee for Vidal could rise in future with variables.

Vidal has given up part of the salary owed to him but will receive a small portion as a pay-off from Barca.

The Chilean will travel to Milan tomorrow for his Inter medical ahead of a reunion with Antonio Conte.

The two worked together with success at Juventus and Vidal is a player Conte believes can improve his Inter side.
