Barcelona reach agreement with Munich to sign Chile midfielder Vidal
The Chilean international joined Bayern Munich in 2015 from Juventus and won the Bundesliga title in each of his three seasons at the club.
"The agreement is for the next three seasons and is pending the medical examination that the player will undertake over the course of the next few days.
"FC Barcelona will shortly inform everyone about the arrival of the player and the agenda of the presentation ceremony."
Vidal, 31, was whisked away from Bayern's pre-season training base on Friday morning with the club's director of sports Hasan Salihamidzic to finalize the details.
Vidal will reportedly earn around nine million euros per season with the Spanish giants.
Temperamental on and off the pitch, Vidal's last season with Bayern was marked by injuries, including one to his knee which he picked up during training and which forced him to undergo surgery in April.
German champions Bayern have been keen to trim their star-studded squad.
Having signed Germany international Leon Goretzka, 23, on a free transfer from Schalke, Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said earlier this week that they had too many midfielders.
