Andreas Zagklis and Dr Heiner Kahlert of Martens Rechtsanwälte have been advising the Chilean national player Arturo Vidal in connection with his transfer from Juventus Turin to FC Bayern Munich. Martens Rechtsanwälte collaborated in this matter with Rodrigo Garcia and José Lasa of Laffer Abogados in Madrid. The transfer fee, which is reported to be between EUR 37 million and EUR 40 million, makes the transfer one of the most expensive in the history of the German Bundesliga. According to media reports, Mr. Vidal signed a four-year contract in Munich with the option for an extension for a fifth year. The annual salary is reported to be around EUR 10 million.
Martens Rechtsanwälte, likewise in cooperation with Spanish colleagues, had already advised Javi Martínez (in 2012, to date the most expensive transfer into the German Bundesliga) and Xabi Alonso (in 2014) in relation to their transfers to FC Bayern Munich.
