Barcelona let Arturo Vidal walk away for free

La trayectoria de Arturo Vidal: Juve, Bayern, Barcelona... ¿Inter? / | Perform

Like with Rakitic, they will not insist on a transfer fee for the Chilean midfielder

It is Arturo Vidal's turn to leave. Ivan Rakitic went before him and the clear-out continues with the Chilean midfielder. Barca will agree a deal for him to rescind his contract and walk away for free.

He has a year to go on his deal but Barca won't force him to stay. They might get a symbolic payment like with Rakitic from Sevilla, but nothing is expected and he will have freedom to sign a deal with Inter Milan, where coach Antonio Conte is keen to bring him in. 

Vidal is the second exit behind Rakitic and Luis Suarez is poised to follow, moving to Italy. One name Barca don't want to leave is Leo Messi, whose future is on the line as we speak.

Barca will be happy to get Vidal's wages off their wage bill, as they were with Rakitic.
