Barcelona has not been having a good time in LaLiga since Spanish football resumed, since it has tied twice in its last three games and has given the team a great opportunity Real Madrid facing the title. The criticism not only goes to the coach, but also to his players and in the midst of the storm the transfer season has already started.
For some weeks, local media reported on a possible departure of Arthur Melo, who arrived in Catalonia in mid-2018. Other portals reported that the ‘Blaugrana’ directive reached an agreement with Juventus to make a kind of barter between the Brazilian and Miralem Pjanić. And apparently in the next few hours that exchange would become official.

Although the 23-year-old footballer rejected the first proposal of the ‘Juve’ because his idea was to fulfill his contract with the club ‘culé’, the new agreement was that the player will receive 7 million euros net per season. The Barza board is not doing well financially and could not promise to improve this figure or even match it.
Furthermore, since the incorporation of Frenkie de Jong, the role of Arthur he has decreased and even lost ownership and has played a few minutes. The competition in the team and the preferences of the current coach Quique Setién would also have been another main indicator of his departure. The only thing left now is to agree on the price of the transfer of the Bosnian Pjanić.
