Barca eyeing Vidal too

Sport are running the line that Barcelona Coach Tata Martino is interested in trying to prise Arturo Vidal away from Juventus.

The Chilean international has signed a new contract this term with the Old Lady, but continues to be linked with a move away, with Real Madrid listed as primarily interested.

However, Catalan daily Sport suggest that their Clasico rivals Barca can be included too, at the specific request of their Coach Martino.

It is believed that in planning ahead for the summer transfer window, the Argentine tactician has requested to club President Josep Maria Bartomeu and sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta that a bid for Vidal is prioritised.

The 26-year-old is seen as valued at around the €50m mark and Sport also suggest that whilst Barca are interested in negotiating, the player’s contentment in Turin does represent a barrier.
