The former Chilean striker Ivan Zamorano claims that Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal and Manchester United loanee Alexis Sanchez will play together at Inter by next season, as per Goal.
The Catalans midfielder was heavily linked with the Nerazzurri in the January window but a transfer move failed to materialize in the end.
The former Juventus man has been getting good football action recently with three LaLiga appearances to his name in January.
While his Chilean team-mate Sanchez is currently serving his loan spell at Antonio Conte’s Inter but it is understood that the Red Devils plan to bring him back to the Theatre of Dreams at the end of this campaign.
According to Zamorano, Vidal will join the Serie-A side in the summer while his fellow countryman will also remain at the San Siro.
He told Radio Cooperativa via Goal.com:
“He [Sanchez] has a contract with Manchester United, but we’ll see where he wants to continue playing and where he feels happy.
“The most important thing is that Alexis enjoy his football, because when he was finding form, he got injured. He didn’t play much at Manchester and that meant he arrived not fully fit.
“I would like Sanchez to remain in Milan, especially as in June he’ll get the chance to play alongside another Chilean, who will very probably come to the club.
“Let’s just say I am optimistic we’ll see two Chileans at Inter next season and I have some privileged information on that score.
“We all know what Vidal means for Antonio Conte and I am sure in June the club will intensify its efforts to sign him from Barcelona. Inter fans would be very happy to have Arturo.”
Inter football executive Beppe Marotta admitted that his club were interested to sign Vidal in the January transfer window.
But the transfer move failed with Ernesto Valverde getting sacked and the Catalans appointing Quique Setien as their new manager.
