The news has delighted Bayern faithfuls with former manager Jupp Heynckes declaring that the club are buying a warrior.
“Arturo is not just limited to being defensive, he also gives impetus to those up front,” Heynckes told Kicker. “There aren’t many players like him.
“He is an excellent conqueror of the ball; he’s scarily good in one-on-one duels; he excels at running and tackling; and he has a special warrior-like quality. He just plays really good football. He’ll ensure balance in Bayern’s midfield.”
Bayern fans joined Heynckes in expressing their delight as they wait for the official confirmation of the news which is imminent any moment, now.
Bayern are going to be a powerhouse. Douglas Costa will be one of the best wingers in the world & Vidal is perfect Schweini replacement.
