Arturo Vidal bade a warm farewell to Bayern Munich, after completing his move to Barcelona.
The Chilean midfielder has agreed to join Barca on a three-year deal in a transfer understood to be worth in the region of €20million.
Vidal, 31, is the LaLiga club’s fourth major recruit of the summer, following the arrivals of Arthur, Malcom and Clement Lenglet.
“Thanks to FC Bayern and all fans,” Vidal said in a brief statement on the Bundesliga champions’ official website.
“I really enjoyed the time in Munich. I would like to thank the club for giving me another chance to take on a new challenge in Barcelona.”
Vidal joined Bayern from Juventus in 2015 and scored 22 goals and supplied 18 assists in 124 competitive games, winning three Bundesliga titles in as many seasons.
