ROME – After the return of Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Milan (official presentation on 3 January), the Arturo Vidal affair ended at the center of the transfer market. Inter continue to work to bring Antonio Conte 's protégé back to Italy, trained in Juventus for three years, but the tug of war with Barcelona persists. The Nerazzurri club would have reached a general agreement with the player for a contract until 2022. The Blaugrana could keep him until the end of the season and then sell him a year before the deadline. Arthur's injury and Aleñá's move to Betis Sevilla, which reduced the number of midfielders available to Valverde, would also slow down the deal.
Juventus meanwhile has got its hands on one of the most talented youngsters in Serie A, the 19 year old Swedish Parma midfielder (owned by Atalanta) Dejan Kulusevski , one of the surprises of the league. The bianconeri managed to snatch it from the Bergamo players by beating Inter's competition with a 45 million operation and offering the player a five-year contract. The signature should arrive in days. Kulusevski, as requested by Atalanta, should remain in Parma anyway until the end of the season. Milan has reached an agreement with Barcelona for the 19-year-old French defender Tobido , an expensive loan with a right of redemption of 20 million. At the moment only the green light of the player is missing. The decision is expected this week. The outgoing job is very complex for the Rossoneri. In the list of probable sales there is first of all the tip Piatek, who however refused to return to Genoa, hoping for Atletico Madrid. Paquetà could end at Paris Saint-Germain. Among the possible starters there are also the outside Ricardo Rodriguez, closed by Theo Hernandez, Kessie and Calhanoglu. For Suso, a 20 million offer has arrived from Seville.
