(ANSA) – RIO DE JANEIRO, JUL 06 – Arturo Vidal, a midfielder who played for Juventus, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Inter, among others, has arrived at the Tom Jobim airport in Rio de Janeiro, where he will meet the Flamengo management for discuss his increasingly probable passage in the ranks of the Rossonero Carioca.
Vidal, who terminated his contract with Inter (he seems to have received a salary of 4 million euros) was welcomed by a few hundred fans who cheered him on. “I am happy to be here – Vidal’s first words – but we are still negotiating. Now I will see, as a fan, the match of Flamengo (against Tolima today at 9.30 pm Rio time, for the second round of the Libertadores ed) and I hope just qualify. “
Having taken Vidal, the management of the ‘Fla’ would like to bring the other Chilean of Inter Alexis Sanchez to Rio, but it seems that, at first contact, the player has rejected the proposals of the cariocas, stating that he wants to continue playing in Europe .
