Arturo Vidal is a Bayern Munich player, having signed from Juventus for 28 million squidoodles.
This is good enough for us. The Guardian wouldn’t lie about such things, would they?

As per the Guardian report:
Arturo Vidal is joining Bayern Munich after his club, Juventus, agreed a €37million (£25.9million) fee for the midfielder with a further £2.1m in add-ons.
The Chilean midfielder has agreed a four-year deal worth £90,000 a week and will leave Turin after four years and four Serie A titles.
To help ease the pain of losing club icon Bastian Schweinsteiger to Manchester United earlier in the week, Bayern Munich have gone out and sourced themselves one heck of a replacement in the shape of Vidal.
£26million up front seems like something of a bargain (relatively speaking) too, seeing as though Juventus were demanding £45million for his services not that long ago.
Word is that Juve’s top brass have gone sour on the Chilean after his booze-tinged car crash while on Copa America duty last month and have been keen to ship him out ever since.
