His tenacious style of play and hard-tackling saw him nicknamed 'Il Gurriero' ('The Warrior'), from his time at Juventus. Vidal can play across the midfield and, despite playing in a more defensive role, he has an eye for goal.
In July 2015, he signed for Bayern Munich on a four-year deal for a fee of €37million, plus €3m in bonuses. It was his second spell in the Bundesliga having played over a hundred matches for Bayer Leverkusen between 2007-2011
Moving to Milan
In September 2020, Barcelona accepted a fee of just £1million for Vidal, as the Chilean moved on to play for Inter Milan. In his first season there, Vidal managed to score against his former club Juventus, as well as help the side to win their first league title in 11 years.
Vidal has appeared in four Copa Americas and two World Cups since he made his Chile debut in 2007. He became a national hero when Chile won the Copa America in 2015, scoring three goals and dispatching his penalty in the shootout win over Argentina in the final - despite having a drink driving charge midway through the tournament.
In October 2017, Vidal announced his international retirement after Chile lost 3-0 to Brazil in their final qualifying game which saw them fail to reach the 2018 World Cup. However, he quickly reversed his decision just 24 hours later.
Vidal signed a two-year contract at Inter in September 2020. According to Forbes, he will earn $7million per season, including sponsorship deals. His net worth is around $17million.
