Barcelona boss Valverde warns Vidal over exit plans

Barcelona refuse to consider selling Arturo Vidal this month.

Sport says at least that's what the club and Ernesto Valverde want to happen.

The coach has already spoken to the Chilean midfielder and let him know that he'll continue to get playing time and to ignore offers and interest from elsewhere. The plan is to revisit his situation next summer when Vidal will be entering the final 12 months of his deal.

Inter Milan are the team pushing hardest to land Vidal this month as they look to maintain their Serie A title challenge.

Both Barça and Vidal know it isn't just interest from Antonio Conte's side as there's an official offer on the table, although the club have declared the midfielder 'untouchable' and see him as a crucial member of the squad.
