Arturo Vidal Is Closing In On His Eighth Domestic League Title In A Row
Arturo Vidal is on the verge of picking up his eighth domestic league title in a row.
That's right, the 31-year-old midfielder has enjoyed a trophy-laden career with domestic honours from his last two teams -- Juventus and Bayern Munich -- but he could secure his first league title with current club Barcelona as they edge closer to capturing the La Liga crown.
The Chile international started his domestic title-winning streak back in 2012 with Juve, winning Serie A four times during his four-year stint at the Old Lady.
Following his departure to Bayern Munich, Vidal once again found success on the domestic front and won three titles with the Bundesliga club.
Fast-forward to present day and Barcelona host Levante at the Camp Nou tomorrow, with a win over their opponents effectively ending the title challenge from second-placed Atlético Madrid.
If Vidal moves to eight consecutive league titles in a row, then he would be two behind current record holder Ljubomir Fejsa.

The 30-year-old Serbian defensive midfielder won ten consecutive league titles with three teams -- Partizan, Olympiacos and Benfica -- in his playing career.
Of course, Vidal would also find himself one behind Zlatan Ibrahimović, who won three Serie A titles with Inter Milan, one La Liga title with Barcelona, another Serie A crown with AC Milan and four Ligue 1 titles with Paris Saint-Germain.
Barcelona will be turning their attention to the Champions League semi-finals after their weekend clash.
Ernesto Valverde's men will host Liverpool at the Camp Nou for the first leg next Wednesday.
