Barcelona star midfielder Arturo Vidal is unhappy with his game time at Camp Nou and has offered his services to AC Milan.
With the signing of Zlatan Ibrahimovic practically completed (the Rossoneri are waiting for UEFA’s ruling before officializing the move) it’s time to think about other areas of the pitch. There is a lot of work to be done in defense but considering the fact that both Romagnoli and Musacchio should return in late December the midfield is the department where a strong intervention is urgent.
There are many targets being linked with AC Milan. Zenit star Leandro Paredes and Stefano Sensi of Sassuolo are the two most notable players on the Rossoneri’s radar. However, in recent days, a new opportunity has presented itself. Barcelona superstar Arturo Vidal has offered his services to AC Milan nostalgic about his times in Italy.
Vidal, widely considered as one of the most completed midfielders in the game in unhappy at Camp Nou. Since joining Barcelona the Chilean has played a dismal 120 minutes in La Liga. Too little for a player of Vidal’s caliber but still enough for him to score 2 goals and provide 2 assists.
King Arturo sees himself as regular starter in every match but considering the variety of choices coach Ernesto Valverde has at his disposal the situation doesn’t seem like it’s going to change in short-term. AC Milan’s purchase of the 31 year old central midfielder would represent a return to Italy for Vidal after 4 very successful years at Juventus.
A low cost solution for Milan and sporting director Leonardo is taking notice. Barcelona purchased the former Bayern Munich for 18 million euros and would be pleased with an offer of 15-18 million. Figures well within the reach of the Red and Black club. In fact, a player of Vidal’s level and experience would be a bargain at this fee.
