Destination Boca?  In Brazil, they take for granted the non-renewal of Arturo Vidal at Athletico Paranaense

Globoesporte reported that Furacao decided not to renew the contract with the Chilean national team, which ends next December. At the same time, there is the interest of the Argentine team, especially after the electoral victory of Juan Román Riquelme.

What will be the next step in Arturo Vidal’s football career? This is quite a question, since the name of the Chilean team is on the radar of several clubs and His journey in the Brasileirao is about to end. This is precisely how the South American giant realizes it.

Globosport the country’s largest sports media outlet, announced today that the Athletico Paranaense has decided not to renew its relationship with King, which ends in December. He is not the only one on the Furacao exit ramp. Right-back Bruno Peres and striker Thiago Andrada will also be out for 2024 after their contracts end.

Vidal is in the final stages of his recovery from a knee injury suffered in September, during the Chilean team’s match against Colombia for the 2026 World Cup qualifiers. The San Joaquín native signed for Paranaense in July , after leaving Flamengo prematurely, in search of the regularity that he claimed not to have at Mengao. Despite the initial enthusiasm, Vidal’s stay in Curitiba did not have the expected presence and, in addition, he had the frustration of being eliminated from the Copa Libertadores against Bolívar.

Lately, the former Bayer Leverkusen player has been active on social media, including on Twitch, streaming and interacting with his fans, while figuring out what’s next in the latter stages of his career. An example occurred in October, when he celebrated the first anniversary of Flamengo’s victory at the Libertadores in 2022 as a player for Athletico Paranaense, precisely the club that lost in the Guayaquil definition.

While the Colo Colo fan is excited about the return of the prodigal son, there is on the other hand the interest of Boca Juniors, and especially of Juan Román Riquelme, recently elected new president of the xeneize club. The fact that Vidal published photos wearing clothes in the colors of the Bostero team was understood as a nod to one of the giants of the neighboring country.
