Chile manager Reinaldo Rueda has been talking about Arturo Vidal’s future and reckons there’s a chance he could leave Barcelona and move to Italy.

The 63-year-old was full of praise for the midfielder and said he understood there had also been interest from Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund too.

Vidal has been heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan, possibly as part of a deal for Lautaro Martinez, and Rueda would not be surprised to see him leave the Spanish champions.

“I think he is very satisfied at Barcelona, ​​the fans have welcomed him very well and I hope that wherever he goes he will be the protagonist.

“As far as I know there is a chance of going back to Italy, Dortmund was recently very very interested in him. But there is nothing concrete and you must have patience to reach a decision.”

Vidal has said himself he wants to feel like an important player, and he’s expected to be moved on in the summer along with Ivan Rakitic.

A number of Premier League clubs have also been linked with the 32-year-old, most recently Manchester United and Newcastle United.
