Barcelona have continued their raid of Europa league winners, Sevilla. Last season, the Catalan club bought Ivan Rakitic from the Seville club and this season, they have announced the signing of Alex Vidal.
Vidal has been the stand out star for Sevilla as they successfully defended the Europa league and Vidal attracted a lot of interest from top European clubs but the winger has picked Barcelona as the club were he would continue his playing career. Vidal would be joining Barcelona on a 5 year contract as the details of the transfer fee still remain undisclosed.
While Vidal would be glad to be joining a big club, he would now have to compete for starting positions with the likes of Neymar, Messi and Iniesta (who can also play out wide).
