Brazilian midfielder Arthur has reportedly agreed to commit to Juventus.
With Arthur’s endorsement, the two clubs concerned should soon agree on the terms of this transaction. Juve was willing to pay up to € 80m, but the deal should close around € 70m instead.

The Bianconeri would not have to pay the full amount, but only € 10 million. And for good reason ; the two clubs also agreed that the Bosnian Miralem Pjanic should take the opposite direction. The two transfers are independent of each other, but they would be concluded at the same time and that is why there will be less money in circulation.
Everything should accelerate in the next few hours, because Barça must register the arrival of a new element before June 30. And this, in order not to end the campaign by being financially in deficit.
At a press conference on Thursday, Maurizio Sarri briefly mentioned this double file. The Piedmontese coach said: “About Miralem Pjanic, I don’t know what the situation is, but at the moment we are fully counting on it. It seems to me that its performance is improving. Arthur is a Barcelona player, it sounds bad if I start talking about it. I did not like when Setién spoke of Pjanic who is my player, I do not want to speak of anything else in the most absolute way. The club did not give me any communication on this subject ”.
