The transfer saga between Arthur Melo, Barcelona, and Juventus is about to end, with Miralem Pjanic also involved. The Brazilian is reportedly very close to giving the Italian side the thumbs up.
Juventus have intensified their contacts with the player in the last few hours and according to ‘ESPN’, they are convinced that the Brazilian will end up at the Juventus Stadium and Pjanic at the Camp Nou.
In fact, according to sources close to the deal to ‘ESPN’, everything has “advanced in the last few hours”, until the fact that a principle of agreement between player and club is assumed for the next five seasons.
The deal between Barcelona and Juventus is almost complete. Barca want to get Pjanic and are willing to sacrifice Arthur to sign the Bosnian midfielder.
‘Sky Sport’ assures that Juve have put 5 million euros per season on the table to convince Arthur, plus bonuses, an offer which has proved valid.
In this way, the swap between Pjanic and Arthur will reportedly happen in the next few hours. Juventus would also pay 10 million euros, the difference in price between the Bosnian and the Brazilian.
If Arthur signs for Juve, he would become the most expensive Brazilian signing in the history of the club. That honour is currently held by Douglas Costa, who signed for Juve for 40 million euros in 2018.
