The Barcelona star Arturo Vidal has completed his signing to join Italy’s Inter Milan. On Tuesday, both the teams agreed. Inter Milan signed Vidal for €1 million. Vidal joined Barcelona in 2018 and has played a total of 96 games for the team. In those 96 games, he has scored 11 goals. The Barcelona president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, thought that the player had lost his form to play in Barcelona and decided to let him go. Barcelona did not have a great season last year. They did not win a single title and even had to face a disastrous loss against FC Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals.
After the humiliating defeat, Bartomeu knew that he had to make some severe changes in the team. He sacked Quique Setien and signed Ronald Koeman. Koeman saw no role for Vidal in the group. Lionel Messi even took it to his social media to bid goodbye to the Chilean star. Messi wished Vidal all the best for his future endeavors. Arturo Vidal will now get a chance to play for his former manager Antonio Conte for whom he used to play in Juventus from 2011 to 2015. Inter Milan has made some positive statements about the player. They have stated that he is a warrior and has the objective of fighting and winning.
