The Bundesliga champion said Vidal signed a four-year deal, with an option for another season.

"I wanted to take another big step in my career," Vidal said in a brief interview on Bayern's website. "I want to develop further as a player, and I want to win important titles, such as the Champions League. And I see Bayern as the best opportunity for that."
