There are fresh reports that Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte may re-unite with his former hatchet man Arturo Vidal in January as the Chilean is keen for a move away from Barcelona.

The midfielder has started just one match this season for the Blaugrana and played little over 200 minutes across the entirety of the campaign to date.

According to the reports, Vidal is unhappy at his playing time at the Catalan giants and could be open to a January move to the Nerazzurri.

Calciomercato cites Gazzetta dello Sport, in addition, stating that Conte is eyeing the possibility of bringing the Barcelona star along with Manchester United midfielder Nemanja Matic in January

In August, a report in FcInterNewsclaimed that the Nerazzurri had received positive signals from the Catalan giants over the summer months over a possible move and that Vidal himself is open to the move.

The Chilean looked set for Inter last summer until the Blaugrana swooped in late to sign him from Bayern Munich.

Vidal, has previously consistently reiterated his desire to stay at the Camp Nou – where he played an important role in winning the title last season.

However, the arrival of Dutch international Frenkie De Jong at the club has pushed him further down the pecking order in Ernesto Valverde’s side, and Inter boss Antonio Conte is waiting to make an offer should he look to move on from Catalonia.

With two years still to run on his contract, Vidal will not be a cheap option, and the Blaugrana are likely to demand in the region of €25m for the 32-year old, if Conte wants to be reunited with the player he won three league titles with at Juventus.

“I would follow him everywhere, even in war,” he was once quoted as saying about the Coach.
