Nearly as soon as he arrived in Barcelona, Arturo Vidal assured the media that he is "100% fit and in flawless physical shape to be a starter in Valverde's team".

"I'm happy for myself, I hope this is my year to win everything with Barca".

While playing for Juventus he won four consecutive Serie A titles, winning the Coppa Italia in his final season and finished as runner-up in the Champions League in 2015 - losing to Barcelona. Vidal has previously played for Juventus in Italy before he switched to Bayern Munich in Germany and now Spain to play for Barcelona. Vidal affirmed that Barcelona represents a big step up from his time at Bayern Munich and when asked about Real Madrid he said he is a rival to any team that plays against Barcelona. Now that I'm on his team, I hope to be up to his standard.
