  • Barcelona reach deal to sign Vidal from Bayern

    Barcelona have agreed a deal with Bayern Munich for Arturo Vidal, announcing the midfielder is set to sign a three-year contract. The 31-year-old moves for a reported €25 million fee ahead of the final year of his contract, after spending three seasons in Germany. Barcelona said on Friday he would have a medical in the coming days to seal his transfer. Vidal fills a need for Barca, whose coach, Ernesto Valverde, has desired another midfielder since the club loaned Paulinho back to Guangzhou Evergrande in July after just one season. Barca had been eyeing Paris Saint-Germain’s Adrien Rabiot or Ajax teenager Frenkie de Jong, but instead decided to move for Vidal over concerns they would not be able to complete a deal with their other targets before the transfer deadline.
