Arturo Vidal set for Inter Milan transfer as £1m fee is agreed with Barcelona

ARTURO VIDAL is set to join Inter Milan from Barcelona for a knockdown price of less than £1million.

Nou Camp chiefs want to get the South American's mega wages off their books so will let him go for one million euros (£916,000).

It is part of a huge revamp at Barca, who have already lost Ivan Rakitic, who switched to old club Sevilla on a free transfer earlier this summer.

New boss Ronald Koeman is making sweeping changes at the club after their shocking 8-2 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich in August.

Uruguay striker Luis Suarez is leaving, with Juventus and Atletico Madrid battling to sign him.

Philippe Coutinho could also go either on loan or in a permanent deal.

Koeman is trying to bring in Lyon's former Manchester United striker Memphis Depay.

Vidal, 33, joined Barca from Bayern Munich in a £35million deal in 2018.

His contract expires in nine months' time but Koeman looks set to get rid of the Chilean international midfielder now.

Italian sports journalist Fabrizio Romano reckons Vidal will move on the cheap next week.

He posted on Twitter: "£Arturo Vidal to Inter, here we go! Tomorrow he’ll fly to Milano. Total agreement reached with Barca for €1m as final fee.

"Antonio Conte is waiting for him. Meanwhile Diego Godin will leave Inter to join Cagliari on next week."

Former Chelsea boss Conte is not afraid of signing a thirtysomething at the Italian giants as he opts once again for experience on the cheap.

He already has 35-year-old Ashley Young, who he picked up on a free transfer from Manchester United.
