The Spanish player could be used either as a right back or forward and would constantly place in a great job which makes some pundits argue about his best position.
The speculation regarding his move to Barcelona heightened in the mid of last term when the Catalans were not certain if back Dani Alves was staying or not considering he was in the last year of his contract and had offers flying left, right and center.
At the ending, Alves chose to stay for another year and Blaugrana were already deep in discussions with Sevilla over Vidal, what made matters a lot easier was the proven fact the player was seriously angling for a move to the European champions.
"Barcelona is a huge club with all the world's best players in the team, every player would love to be part of this kind of side, to play with stars like Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Andres Iniesta would be a dream come true for me" the player who wouldn't be able to appear for the club until January due a prohibition said at his unveiling.
With the exit of Pedro to Manchester United almost certain right now, Vidal might have earned himself another position in the assaulting line considering Alves would be expecting to retain his starting spot on the team.
Like Jordi Alba who on arrival from Valencia, fitted perfectly with Barcelona's 'tiki taka' style of play, Vidal is, in addition, anticipated to accommodate without much adore particularly given his antecedent at Sevilla and the very fact he plays with bulk of Barcelona players with the Catalonia national team.
In my opinion, the single problem continue how best to keep both Vidal and fellow 'new lad' Arda Turan in the best shape that is possible since they won't be in action until next year and high level football demands top level competitors to maintain sharpness.
Another huge benefit is that, in the correct age of 25, Vidal wouldn't only be a long-term replacement for 32 year old Alves but a servant of the club for many years to come.
With the Spanish national team embracing same playing style as Barca and both teams featuring majorly same players, this player could progress to turned into one the very best of all times for Barcelona.
