Ronald Koeman does not see Arturo Vidal as a first-team member under him and has told him to find new employers in the summer transfer window.

Ernesto Valverde found a place for Arturo Vidal. The Chilean was a regular started under the manager. 

After failing to initially get minutes under Quique Setien, he forced himself into the starting eleven. He was on the pitch when Bayern Munich mauled Barcelona. 

Ronald Koeman is the third manager at Camp Nou in the space of eight months. The Dutch tactician is brought in the dugout to revitalize the squad and he is not mincing his words.

Koeman informed Luis Suarez and Arturo Vidal that they are not part of his plans. Shortly afterward, Lionel Messi drop the bomb of bombs, stating his desire to leave. 

While the Catalan club are busy fighting the fall out from Messi’s decision, Vidal and his representatives are talking to potential employers.

Football Italia reported that both Inter Milan and Juventus are interested in securing his services. 

Vidal has a history with managers of both clubs, Antonio Conte and Andrea Pirlo. Conte was the manager at Juventus when the dynamic midfielder played alongside Pirlo.

The 33-year-old is of the opinion that he has a greater chance of winning the Champions League with the Old Lady as compared to the Nerazzurri. This statement might change as Inter are one of the favorites to bring Messi to the Serie A.
