Bayern Munich Coach, Pep Guardiola

Bayern Munich have completed the signing of Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal for a fee in the region of €40 million and is set to be unveiled to the media.

The Bundesliga champions already announced last week that they had reached an agreement with the Bianconeri and that Vidal only had to pass his medical before signing a contract with Bayern.

The 28-year-old touched down in Munich on Monday evening and he successfully underwent a medical on Tuesday morning and will be presented to the press at 15:30CET on Tuesday.

Bayern were in the market for a new midfielder following the departure of Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United earlier this month and they quickly turned their attention to the Chile international, who won the Copa America with his country this summer.

The Allianz Arena side previously attempted to lure Vidal to Munich in 2011, but he eventually left Bayer Leverkusen for Juventus instead.

Bayern kept close tabs on him ever since, though, and they have now gotten their man at last. 

The versatile midfielder started his professional career with Colo Colo, before arriving in the Bundesliga with Leverkusen in 2007. Over his four year spell in Turin, he won four Serie A titles and the Coppa Italia, with his final game for the team coming in the Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.
