The coach of the Buenos Aires club on the Chilean leaving Inter: “A player of his level would do well in all Argentine football”
Arturo Vidal’s intense search for a destination continues and this time an assist comes from Boca Juniors, a team in which he himself had said he was interested in recent days. “It would take us to the next level,” he admitted him to Olé the coach Sebastian Battaglia referring to the Chilean. Public statements that definitely make room for the Argentine club in the race for Inter midfielder, even if the track is economically tortuous.
The technician of the Xeneizes he mentioned to Vidal in a long interview, expressing his desire to reinforce the midfield with a player of similar experience: “A player of his level would do well in all Argentine football”. We are still in the preliminary phase of the negotiation, but it is certainly a good way to start a possible deal: “Vidal has a lot of experience, we know what kind of player he is and what he could give to our squad.” Battaglia, however, has not yet confronted himself with the person concerned: “I have not yet talked to Arturo, if the negotiation were to proceed I hope to have the opportunity. However, at the moment I do not follow the market, I am focused on the next commitments and let him managers take care of it “.
Beyond the declarations, the feasibility of this path is far from obvious. The 7 million euros per year to which Vidal is used are prohibitive for most of the contenders, with the sole exception of the Al Rayyan and therefore the petrodollars of Qatar. With Colo Colo now eclipsed, Flamengo is the other strong name, in the running ever since Arturo himself had publicly declared that he wore the Brazilian Rossoneri. The doors to knock on, however, are still many, but we need to lower the demands.
