Arturo Vidal says the chances of achieving European glory is what convinced him to leave Juventus for Bayern Munich as he is desperate to win the Champions League this season.

The Chile international reached the Champions League final with the Serie A champion last season, but believes he has a better chance of winning the competition with Pep Guardiola's men.

"I have come here to win the Champions League," he told reporters. "Hopefully it will be this year, but I will spend several years here and hope to win as many cups as I possibly can.

"I will play in midfield the same way I did with the national team and with Juventus. That is where I feel more comfortable."

Vidal made his official debut for Bayern on Saturday as the club lost out on the first piece of silverware of the season to Wolfsburg in the DFB Supercup.

The 28-year-old previously enjoyed a spell in the Bundesliga with Bayer Leverkusen between 2007 and 2011.
