The summer 2018 left some surprises in the staff of the FC Barcelona and one of them was the signing of Arturo Vidal. The bet by Paulinho a year before resulted very positive, by what there were few doubts to the hour to attend to the market in search of a midfield player with a similar profile. The Catalans played it to him with a todoterreno that moves away of his usual style, but that is not defrauding to anybody.

The one of Saint Joaquín follows winning weight in the diagrams culés, and already is the fourth more used player in the medullary. In what it goes of course, his 299 minutes only surpass them the omnipresente Frenkie of Jong (1.038 minutes), Sergio Busquets (818) and Arthur (690), and it is necessary to take into account that the sudamericanos began to go in later because of his presence in the Glass America -and that Sergi Roberto has played also like lateral-.

Although it does not hide that it would like him be títular and play even more, has the total confidence of Ernesto Valverde, that is loved with his contribution so much when it begins the parties from the start as when 'break' from the bench. Other ancient predilectos of the extremeño, as Ivan Rakitic (233) or Carles Aleñá (45), are seeing relegados, partly by the promotion and the excellent performance that is offering the 'king'.

The greater virtue of the Chilean is to have known fit his virtues in some very distinct surroundings, and have known to adapt to the always demanding style of the Camp Nou. His tactical anarchy compensates with a wear that allows him help in defence and in attack, and plant always like an alternative of pass for all his mates. His contribution, besides, has to be taken into account, since after closing the past course with three so many and seven assistances in 53 parties, east goes by three and one in hardly nine commitments.

The debate that shows on if it is covering to some promises of the quarry close it his age and his qualities, that mark the difference in relation to other products of mark Barça. To his 32 years, is a project clearly of present, and while the Riqui Puig or Oriol Busquets outline his promotion to the first team, never is of more have a crack that does not have reply in the changing room. In the majority of questions, there is not another like him.

It will leave Arturo Vidal the Barça ahead of time?

While the fans enjoys him week after week, the big doubt resides today in the future of Arturo Vidal, that could leave the Barça ahead of time. His performances have not happened unobserved in Europe, and his beaux, with an Inter of Milan that already wanted him in command, go back to call to his door. The Barcelona no descartan do box with his traspaso next summer, whenever the possible buyer approach to the 18 million euros that invested in his contracting.
