Arthur accepted the offer from Juventus and started to say goodbye to Barcelona teammates. According to the newspaper Mundo Deportivo, the player should present himself next week to the Italian club. The athlete is expected this weekend in Turin to perform medical examinations and sign a contract with the new club.
The publication reports that the last obstacles that still prevented the settlement were overcome in the last hours. The midfielder understood that he was losing space to De Jong, Vidal, Rakitic, and Rigui Puig and, therefore, would not be able to be so important for Barcelona next season. Coach Quique Setién would have already given a positive signal for the deal.
The player’s market valuation is 70 million euros. The transaction needs to be completed by next Tuesday (30) due to the rigor of UEFA’s financial fair play. According to the publication, the player expects only his agents to complete the deal change agreement.
