Barcelona’s Arturo Vidal: I want to win Champions League with world’s best

Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal said he wants to win the Champions League with “the best team in the world” and believes he will have to play at a higher standard now that he is a teammate of players such as Lionel Messi.

Vidal, 31, was introduced by Barca on Monday after he passed a medical and signed a three-year contract with the club after three seasons at Bayern Munich.

Vice president Jordi Mestre said Barcelona have a €300 million buyout clause on Vidal, who had one year left on his contract with Bayern.

“When my agent gave me the option, I didn’t doubt for a second,” Vidal said at a news conference. “To face Messi is something beautiful because you take on the best player in the history. Now that I’m on his team, I hope to be up to his standard.

“We have the best players in the world here. I’ve played in many teams and now I’ve arrived at the best. This is a new challenge. To have arrived at Barcelona is a bigger step than that of Bayern Munich. I hope to help the team win titles. I’m hungry to win titles. I have arrived with all the energy and ready to leave my heart on the pitch.”
