Report: Juve reject Vidal return

Juventus have reportedly rejected the opportunity to take back Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal in exchange for Miralem Pjanic.

According to Calciomercato.com, Barca offered Vidal to Juve in a last-ditch attempt to keep their swap deal for Pjanic alive.

However, the Bianconeri would have turned down the Chilean, keeping the coast clear for Inter to make their move.

The 32-year-old enjoyed four hugely-successful seasons in Turin between 2011 and 2015, winning four Scudetti and reaching a Champions League Final.

Milan linked with Rakitic again

Milan will try again to sign Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona, claim Mundo Deportivo, but his €8m per year salary represents a big problem.

According to the Spanish newspaper, the Rossoneri are set for a third attempt to coax Rakitic to San Siro.

He is seen as a leadership figure and star name in midfield to help younger figures around him develop.

The 32-year-old Croatia international’s contract with Barcelona is due to expire in June 2021 and a summer exit is not out of the question.

Barca struggled to create any real goal scoring opportunities, and Rakitic explains why.
