Barcelona have rejected a loan offer from Inter Milan for Arturo Vidal, according to reports to Spain.
Inter have shown a keen interest in the Chilean midfielder all summer but have had their efforts to bring him in on a season-long loan knocked back by the Spanish champions, who bought him for £27million from Bayern Munich last August.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona would prefer to sell Vidal and recoup as much of the £27m which would then be used towards bringing Neymar back to the Nou Camp this summer.

Neymar has been linked with a sensational return to Barcelona before September 2 after revealing he is unhappy with life in Paris and would prefer to head back to Spain.
Real Madrid have also been linked with the 27-year-old who are willing to enter a bidding war in the hopes of landing the PSG superstar.
The La Liga giants are understood to be have a much healthier financial position than bitter rivals Barca, and would be able to accommodate the arrival of Neymar onto their wage bill.

Reigning French champions PSG are now willing to sell the forward after his dismissive attitude about staying in Paris, but will demand closer to £228m for their prized asset before sanctioning a sale.
Barca have been frantically trying in recent weeks to patch together a suitable deal for Neymar, though have so far seen their ideas and advances knocked back.
As reported by Sportsmail, PSG rejected Barca’s first offer to bring Neymar back to Catalonia and have remained firm on their stance.
