Arturo Vidal completed his move to Bayern Munich from Juventus after passing his medical on Tuesday morning, putting pen to paper on a four-year contract with the Rekordmeister.

"I am very happy," Vidal told the club website. "This is a new step in my career and I hope to do my business here well. I want to support the team and win titles. It is a dream coming to fruition for me."

Juventus disclosed on their website they will receive a fee of €37 million from Bayern, as well as up to €3 million in add-on fees based on "targets stipulated in the agreement". BILD believes his salary will be at a rate of €10 million per season.

"He is a player type with an outstanding mentality," said Bayern sporting director Matthias Sammer. "With his tackling behavior, his scoring threat, and his flexibility will do us good."

Vidal arrived in Munich on Monday to complete the deal. He has not started his preseason training with Juventus after winning the Copa America with Chile. The club has not announced whether Vidal will be ready to play in the DFL-Supercup this Saturday against VfL Wolfsburg.
