New Delhi:

Spanish giants Barcelona have unveiled their new signing Arturo Vidal following his switch from Bayern Munich. The 31-year-old dynamic midfielder joins the Blaugrana on a three-year deal for a fee of £27 million after lifting six trophies in Germany.

The 100-cap Chilean will sign the contract on Monday, just before his official presentation on the Nou Camp.

“To be honest I am very happy and I am looking forward to starting training with my teammates, to wearing such a famous shirt, and to doing important things here.

“It is a dream. I hope to achieve my objectives. I am here to win all the trophies available and I will give everything on the pitch to achieve this,” Vidal said at his unveiling.

“I am excited to play with Messi, [Luis] Suarez, Sergio Busquets… they are all great players,” he added

Vidal comes in as a replacement for Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, who rejoined Guangzhou Evergrande on a season-long loan with an option to make it permanent.

Paulinho scored a total of nine goals in La Liga and was crucial to their title-winning campaign amid heavy criticism from the fans.

Meanwhile, fans are showing mixed reaction over the signing of the 31-year-old Vidal, despite his magnificent trophy-laden career at Bayern Munich and Juventus.

The Chilean has won 13 trophies for Bayern and Juve.
