Vidal in talks with Barcelona to terminate his contract as he eyes move to Inter Milan.

His agents are in negotiations with Nou Camp over the possibility of having his contract terminated.

The Chilean’s current deal runs until the end of June 2021 but the midfielder is keen on leaving the Spanish side.

The 33-year old made a move from Bayern Munich in 2018 and has made 96 appearances for the Catalans.

Last season, he made 43 appearances for the side, scoring only eight goals in what may be his last season with the side.

The 33-year-old has been vocal in his criticism of Barcelona, criticising the club for being too reliant on Lionel Messi and having too many youth products in the first-team. He slammed the club for having just ’13 professional players’.

Speaking to Daniel Habif’s YouTube channel, the celebrated Chilean said:

‘Barcelona have to change their way of thinking.

Football has moved on a lot and the [whole] DNA [thing] is being left behind because other teams are improving in other aspects: football at the moment is more physical, more dependent on power and speed and the technical side is sometimes less important.

‘The last three years are not what a team like Barcelona deserves. The best team in the world cannot have 13 professional players. You cannot always win with DNA.’

Vidal is keen to move away from Barcelona as he feels that his playing time may be limited under the new reign of Ronald Koeman who is keen on an overhaul of the side.
