Bayern Munich supremo Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has claimed that Inter Milan made “no offer” for Liverpool midfield target Arturo Vidal this summer.
Liverpool were strongly linked with a move for Vidal throughout the summer but the Reds secured the signing of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain instead, while Naby Keita will also arrive in 2018.
It was suggested that Inter had bid for Vidal, who joined Bayern from Juventus for €37million in 2015 but that owners, the Suning Group, had been blocked from moving money out of China to get the deal done.
The Italian giants were after the Chile legend as a replacement for Geoffrey Kondogbia, who left the club for Valencia towards the end of the transfer window, but Rummenigge claims that no bid was ever submitted.
“It’s a lie,” he told Premium Sport. “They never asked him of us”.
