International soccer superstar Arturo Vidal -- who plays for Juventus and the Chilean national team -- struck a HUGE deal with prosecutors and won't go to jail for a drunken Ferrari crash. 

28-year-old Vidal totaled his expensive Ferrari on the way from a casino in Chile last month -- and reportedly trashed a police officer who responded to the scene. 

But he won't go to jail -- instead, officials say he agreed to write a huge check to the other driver in the accident (the amount of the check hasn't been disclosed) ... and his driver's license has been yanked for 2 years. 

He also apologized to the cop he insulted -- and was ordered to give motivational speeches to inmates. 

As for the Ferrari -- he can afford a new one ... the guy makes more than $8 million per year.
