Vidal almost OFFICIAL transfer to Bayern
It looks increasingly as though Arturo Vidal will join Bayern Munich from Juventus for a fee of around 40 million eur plus 5 million in add-ons.
He is, of course, a very fine midfielder, but he’s not somebody who obviously seems to fit Pep Guardiola's style of play.
That raises two possibilities, both intriguing: Firstly, that, given Guardiola has only one year left on his contract, Bayern are already looking to a future without Pep, or that Guardiola is considering modifying his approach.
Guardiola is an arch-tinkerer, so perhaps that’s not so surprising. He’s somebody who can barely leave his team shape alone for five minutes during a game without making an adjustment, his capacity for micromanagement being both a great strength and the reason he can so often look so drained by the process of coaching—and it may be, that level of intensity comes to feel oppressive.
