Arturo Vidal praises Antonio Conte relationship between Inter-Interest.

Arturo Vidal has hinted that he is interested in a possible move to Inter due to his good relationship with Antonio Conte.

The Barcelona midfielder is one of the most decorated players in world football, having won eight consecutive league titles with Juventus, Bayern Munich and most recently the reigning Spanish champions.

However, Vidal has featured sparingly this season, starting just eight games as a result of fierce competition for places in Barcelona’s midfield, sparking speculation that he could leave the club at the end of the season.

Speaking to El Periodico, the Chile international admitted he wants more game time at the Camp Nou to feel his worth.

“Here I’m happy and I have great teammates, but I want to feel important,” Vidal said. “Otherwise, I will have to find something else to continue my career.

“I love playing, I don’t say all sports, but winning titles is the most difficult and important.”

The winning team!!!??????⚽️

If the 33-year-old calls time on his Barcelona career, he has been linked with a switch to Inter – a move that would see him reunited with former boss Conte.

Vidal spent three years playing under the Italian at Juventus, winning three Serie A titles in the process.

Asked about Conte’s interest in him, Vidal added: “We have a great relationship, he knows I’m a winner and he can trust me. That’s what I want here.”

The midfielder is set to return to action with Barcelona on Saturday evening, as they take their La Liga defense back underground with a trip to Mallorca.

The Catalan giants are currently two points clear at the summit of La Liga, and Vidal insists his focus is purely on Barcelona’s title challenge, not his future.

“We are in the league and what we have is such a fixed goal that we don’t need to think about anything else,” Vidal said. “We should be champions, that’s what really matters.”
