Vidal took three shots, with two on target, and scored his first Bundesliga goal Saturday against Darmstadt.

Vidal is in fine form right now, as he picked up an assist in Bayern's 3-0 demolition of Olympiacos in the Champions League on Wednesday. He's got a regular spot in the starting XI, though he doesn't have the fantasy upside of many of his teammates because he's not a big goal scorer.

Vidal had three key passes, four fouls drawn and five tackles during Bayern's 5-0 win over Hamburg on Friday.

Vidal joined Bayern this summer after transferring from Juventus, and he slotted right into the starting lineup in between Douglas Costa and Thomas Muller. Vidal isn't a huge goal scorer, though he could see an increase in assists this year with the dominant finishers around him.

Vidal signed a four-year contract with Bayern Munich on Tuesday after transferring from Juventus.

Vidal was linked with a number of European clubs this summer, most notably Arsenal, but the German giants stepped up with a bid reportedly around 26 million plus add-ons. He is an elite central midfielder who will likely link up with Xabi Alonso to form one of the best midfield duos in the world. He doesn't score a ton, which limits his fantasy value in most formats, though Bayern are a much better offensive team than Juventus.

Vidal is close to completing a 37 million transfer from Juventus to Bayern Munich, The Guardian reports.

Vidal began his decorated career in Germany with Bayern Leverkusen, before joining Juventus in 2011 and winning four straight Serie A titles. Now fresh off a Copa America triumph with his native Chile, Vidal appears set to sign with Bundesliga power Bayern Munich, where his midfield versatility can help with both winning possession and pushing forward in attack. At 28 years old, Vidal has consistently totaled around 10 goals in recent seasons, which should help him earn a spot in Bayern's gifted first-team setup.

Vidal had another great season for Juventus, as he scored eight goals and provided four assists while controlling the midfield for the Scudetto and Copa Italia champions.

The Chilean failed to reach the impressive total of 18 goals he scored last season, but arguably had a better year in terms of winning possession and driving the attack forward. Suitors from all over Europe have expressed interest in Vidal, but the player himself recently said he desires to stay at Juventus and compete for more trophies.
