‘Inter same as Juve with Vidal’

Former Inter midfielder Nicola Berti claims the Nerazzurri would be ‘on the same level as Juventus’ if they sign Arturo Vidal.

Vidal is reportedly on the verge of a €20m move to Inter, despite winning four Scudetti with Juve, and Berti – who won a Serie A title and two UEFA Cups with the Beneamata between 1988 and 1998 – felt the 31-year-old would be a ‘super’ signing.

“With Vidal, Inter would be super,” he told La Tercera.

“I really like him as a player. He likes to score and run across the pitch. He’s a player who gives a lot on the field and fights for every ball. I hope it’s true that he’s coming.

“He’ll give a lot in every sense, as a player and a leader. With Arturo, we’d be on the same level as Juventus.

“I can assure you that we’d be fighting for the Scudetto, and I hope we can play an important role in the Champions League too.

“If I could say something to Vidal, I’d say to be like [countryman] Ivan Zamorano. Inter fans really appreciate players who give everything on the field.

“Vidal’s a warrior, so I have no doubt that he’ll succeed.”

The ex-Italy international was then asked about a possible midfield pairing of the Chilean and Radja Nainggolan.

“Imagine that! They’re two great players with great energy,” he concluded.
