Arturo Vidal arrives at Barcelona aiming to 'win all the trophies available'

Arturo Vidal has expressed happiness after joining Barcelona and potentially playing alongside Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, and Luiz Suarez. As well as his three Bundesliga titles he also helped the club win the DFB-Pokal in 2016 and the German Super Cup twice. "I'm just happy to be here and sign the contract".

Barcelona last won the Champions League in 2015, beating Vidal's Juventus in the final, and rivals Real Madrid have won it in each of the three seasons since, twice knocking out the Chilean while at Bayern.

Midfielder Arturo Vidal, who recently transferred to FC Barcelona from Bayern Munich, held his first training with the Catalan football giants. "I have not been able to win one yet", he said.

"I don't know if I have unfinished business with Madrid, but I do with the Champions League, which is my goal", Vidal said Monday at his presentation.


Vidal has been linked with a move to Inter-Milan and Premier League clubs, Manchester United and Chelsea, but once Barcelona offered him a contract, he rejected all the offers to join Barcelona.

"[I will bring] a lot of fight, lots of passion, helping the team at all times, and making sure the team always wins". "I really enjoyed my time in Munich. I hope to achieve my objectives", the 31-year-old told the gathered press. With the confidence that the people have given me, I want to win it all.

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