AC Milan are reportedly preparing an offer to loan Aleix Vidal on a one-year deal with an option to make the deal permanent.
According to todomercadoweb, there has been no meeting between the two parties but a telephone conversation took place last Friday.
The website, which currently covers Spanish, European and South American football, says that Vidal "reflects and observes the situation".
And, at the same time, he values his former club Sevilla and "is very interested in returning".
Todomercadoweb points out that "the idea is propose a transfer to Milan for one season with an option to buy" and that all "will be discussed after June 15 between the clubs".
Vidal signed for Barça in June 2015 from Sevilla on a five-year deal until the 2019/20 season.
He was unable to make his debut until January 6, 2016 due to the FIFA imposed transfer ban on the club.
In his first year he played 14 games (862 minutes) and won La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
