Aleix Vidal to threat Dani Alves starting spot at Barcelona | Francesc Tomas

Less than 24 hours after the conclusion of the highly emotional treble celebrations which took the Barcelona stars all around the Catalan capital, the club confirmed the first signing ahead of next season: Aleix Vidal from Sevilla. 

The 25 year old right winger, who has also excelled as a right-back under Unai Emery, has signed until the summer of 2020 and cost the club an initial €18 million plus a further €4M in add-ons. Given the fact that Barcelona are not allowed to register any newcomers until January 2016, the player has agreed to spend the rest of the year adapting to his new teammates in training until the ban is finally over.
