The Barcelona man is looking to finish his career in Italy, where he played from 2011 to 2015 for Juventus under Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte.
Speaking in an interview on YouTube about Barcelona’s saga, Arturo Vidal said: “Barcelona has to change a lot of things.
“A team, which I think is the best in the world, cannot have 13 professional players and the rest are minors. Not because (the youth) do not deserve to be there, but in this team, they have to be competing for who is best and who will play.
“I am at the disposal of what the team decides, here or at another club, I will try to be the best. I already spoke with Ronald Koeman, this Sunday 30 we return, and we will see what happens.”
