Juventus confirm Arturo Vidal medical ahead of switch from Bayer Leverkusen

Italian giants have their hands on the Chile international as he arrives for a routine fitness test before joining them officially by signing a contract
Juventus have revealed that Arturo Vidal is set to undergo a medical with the club ahead of completing his move from Bayer Leverkusen.

On Wednesday Vidal said he was looking forward to joining the Italians, despite supposedly giving his word to Bayern Munich who complained regarding his move to Serie A.

Bayern president Uli Hoeness was less than impressed and said Vidal had broken his word.

However, when it came to pushing the move forward, it was Juventus who reacted with haste, and it seems they will get their man.

A statement on the club's official website reads:

"Arturo Vidal is in Turin. He arrived from Chile on Thursday, and today [Friday] he will have his medicals. The midfielder is having his first exams at the Clinica Fornaca di Sessant, just a few yards away from the club's corso Galileo Ferraris headquarters."

Details regarding the figures of the transfer have not been disclosed by either club.

But previous reports have suggested Juventus will pay Leverkusen €10.5 million, which could rise to €12m.

Around 30 per cent of the fee will be paid to Vidal's former side Colo Colo.

The player, 24, is expected to pen a five-year deal worth around €3m per annum in wages.
