Vidal cancels his Inter contract
As Vidal nears a transfer to Flamengo, Arturo Vidal has canceled his contract with Inter Milan.
The 35-year-old signed a contract with Inter in 2020 that ran through 2022 with an option for an extra year.
After the first two years of the contract, Inter may pay Vidal a €4 million severance fee, according to sources from last month.
In the 2021–22 season, Vidal only made two Serie A starts, therefore the Nerazzurri apparently wanted to offload him.
On Monday, they said that the contract for Vidal had been mutually terminated.
That news will not have come as much of a surprise to supporters given Vidal was spotted arriving in Rio de Janeiro last week accompanied by Flamengo personnel before posing for photographs with supporters.
Should Vidal join Flamengo, it will mark his return to South American football after 15 years away.
Chile international Vidal left Colo-Colo for Bayer Leverkusen in 2007 and spent four years in the Bundesliga before moving on to Juventus, where he remained until 2015.
Vidal then returned to Germany with Bayern Munich, before spending two years at Barcelona.
