Berlin - Spanish powerhouse Barcelona have signed Chilean midfielder Arturo Vidal from Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich.

According to reports, the deal is worth €30 million as the Catalan giants look to strengthen their midfield.

Vidal, 31, was whisked away from Bayern's pre-season training base on Friday morning with the club's director of sport Hasan Salihamidzic to finalise the details.

His arrival will make up for the surprise departure of Brazilian midfielder Paulinho, who Barcelona loaned to Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.

Barcelona had to move fast to sign Vidal as the player had also reportedly sparked interest from Inter Milan following the departure of their French midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

Vidal will reportedly earn around €9 million per season with the Spanish giants.
