The agreement between Arthur Melo and Juventus is now a reality. As is the deal between Pjanic and Barcelona and between the two clubs. The three parties are now all on the same pages and the deal, which has been brewing for months, is finally in the final stages. The last part was convincing Arthur to embark on a new adventure in Italy.
Up until a few days ago, the Brazilian midfielder was still adamant that he wanted to succeed at Barça at any cost. In the end, he’s accepted a move to Juve, where he will earn more money (5 million plus bonuses) and will sign a five-year deal. Meanwhile, Pjanic was always open to the Barça move and will sign a five-year deal earning around 7.5 million.
Arthur, 23, seven years Pjanic’s junior, is expected to travel to Turin this week to undergo a medical, according to RAC1. Barça will give him permission to head to the north of Italy. Despite that, Pjanic, like Arthur, will remain with their current teams until the end of the Champions League in August.
