Arturo Vidal interposed a demand against the FC Barcelona the past 5 December, as it has informed the newspaper 'ABC', when demanding 2,4 million euros in concept of bonus has not credited of the past season. It seems a 'inocentada', but is not it. From the Catalan entity consider that the action of the Chilean is a clear manoeuvre to force his exit, and more taking into account that the Inter of Milan is very interested in ficharle.

And it is that the demand has been received in the offices of the Camp Nou with surprise. In the Barcelona sustain that the club does not have to him neither a euro more, and that the claims of Arturo Vidal are fruit of a bad interpretation of the numerous clauses that has the agreement that signed in summer of 2018. The surroundings of Arturo Vidal demands that it earn the bonus for having played 60% of the parties, in addition to the bonus for winning LaLiga and for classifying for the chambers and the eighth of the Champions League.

The FC Barcelona, however, ensures that the Chilean only could perceive 50% of the bonus corresponding to the title of League and 50% of the bonus for having classified for eighth and quarter-finals of the Champions, to the have not arrived the player to the minimum of parties demanded to earn the whole of the prize. Arturo Vidal yes thinks that has arrived to this number of parties because contabiliza only his participations -independently of the minutes-, whereas the Barça only contabiliza the party like played if the Chilean plays X minutes.

To all this, if Arturo Vidal has not contested 60% of official parties does not correspond him any quantity thus, when understanding the Barça that treats of an indivisible premium. It earns if they reach the values demanded or, of the contrary, does not perceive neither a euro if it does not fulfil , independently of how remain the percentage of parties played.

In brief, that exists a big surprise in the FC Barcelona with the complaint of Arturo Vidal, and understands that the Chilean would want to force his gone out course to the Inter of Milan in this same market of winter, to tenor of the conditions that offer him the 'nerazzurri'. The juridical services of the Barça, in an answer to the Mixed Commission of the League and the AFE, remember that Arturo Vidal was quiet during six months.

Why the demand of Arturo Vidal arrives now and no before?

The Chilean has remained six months in silence, without doing quotation to his supposed disagreement with the club, and is thus that the Barça shows his total extrañeza by the haste that now would have gone in him to recover the money that, according to him, corresponds him. "This is the most unpublished case of all, somebody pays you a debt, and if really it applied some rules that do not consider valid, do not expect six months without not even educadamente warn him that it have been able to incur in an error, for, however, when súbitamente publish in press news on the interest of the player in abandoning the club, require that in the term of 24 hours credit him a determinate quantity", explains the Barça in his writing, revealed by 'MD'.

The Barcelona club, besides, add the following: "The own acts of the gentleman Arturo Vidal show that peacefully it accepted the payment according to it pactado by the parts, and only now, by reasons that desconocemos and that perhaps explain the context mentioned, súbitamente appears this interest. During six long months the gentleman Vidal has not understood timely to communicate to anybody that he did not agree with the interpretation".

In definite, from the City Condal understand that the unseen interest of Arturo Vidal with his demand to the Barça, further that have or no reason, is the one to break what before his contractual bond with the club for fichar by the Inter of Milan or another of the teams interested in him. A for nothing expected situation does some weeks, and that generates turbulences in the planning culé.
