Rakitic and Vidal, still in Conte's sights
Antonio Conte wants to bring back Inter's former glory. And, to do so, he has been asking for quality signings since his arrival to the "Nerazzurri" bench.
Tuttosport' reports that the Italian coach has raised the demands, and is now asking for Rakitic and Vidal, the last two names to be linked to the Milan club.
Conte would love to have that pair, as they complement each other optimally. The Chilean would bring muscle and great experience, while the Croatian's talents as a midfielder speak for themselves at Barcelona
The source states that Barça has no plans to let the two midfielders go. Ernesto Valverde will have a tough task to manage the minutes between the midfielders, but he doesn't want to see himself suddenly without two of them.
However, if only one of them leaves the club could potentially agree. Barcelona is in need of cash in order to pay for Neymar's return to Barça, and it could also get rid of a couple of midfielders, an area where there are more than enough talented players. There, Busquets, De Jong, Arthur, Sergi Roberto and Aleñá join Rakitic and Vidal are all fighting for minutes, which means one exit would not harm Valverde's team.
