Vidal to Inter this week

Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal is expected in Italy to sign for Inter before the end of this week.

The Nerazzurri are on the verge of completing a deal for the Chilean, on loan with an option to buy.

The Bavarian club will extend Vidal’s contract for a further year before allowing him to go on loan to the Beneamata, with the total cost of the deal expected to be around €22m.

A large part of that will be made up of the loan, as there has to be a significant incentive for Inter to make the deal permanent, effectively if not legally turning it into an obligation to buy.

According to FCInterNews, Vidal has agreed a three-year deal worth €4.5m per season plus bonuses.

The website believes that the former Juve man will be in Italy before Saturday, though some of his medical could be done in Munich.
