Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal breaks the silence and claims to be “happy and relaxed” in Catalonia. By saying thus, he may be contradicting Barcelona’s plans to sign him off for profit.
The Chilean centre-midfielder was linked to the move to Serie A this winter, and both Inter and Juventus were named as potential suitors.
There are further speculations around his close relations with Antonio Conte and reports of a potential reunion with the former Juventus coach, who is now in San Siro.
However, the player has admitted that he would prefer to live in Spain.
“I’m very happy and comfortable in Barcelona, I obviously want to continue here,” he said on Instagram Live. “Now, I’m more prepared than ever before. I’m happy, there’s a great group and I have many friends in the dressing room.”
