Capello: Vidal could decide title race for Inter Milan

Former Italy coach Fabio Capello believes Arturo Vidal could be decisive in the title race.

The Barcelona midfielder is being linked with Inter Milan.

"Juve remain Juve, but they also have the Champions League in their minds and that is a distraction," Capello told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Inter can focus entirely on Serie A, because after dropping down from the Champions League to the Europa League, they can put all their attention on domestic matters. If they get Vidal, then Inter really can do it.

“That would be a great coup, as it's rare to get quality players in January. Vidal has experience, an eye for goal and Conte already knows him very well.

“With Vidal, Inter can genuinely target the Scudetto, even though it'd still only make the odds 50-50."
