Juventus Complete Signing Of Barca Defender, Arthur For £72.5m

Juventus have officially announced the signing of Arthur from Barcelona for £72.5 million.

The midfielder completed his medical at the Italian club on Sunday but was seen training with Barca on Monday. A video emerged of him seemingly saying his goodbye in a huddle on the training ground.

Arthur will earn £4.5m (€5m) per year in Turin, an increase on his current wage at Barcelona.

Miralem Pjanic will be going in the opposite direction for a fee worth around £60 million – although that deal is yet to be confirmed by either club.

Arthur signed a six-year contract at Barca in the summer of 2018, after signing from Gremio for an initial £27 million.

The midfielder played 27 times in La Liga in his debut campaign, failing to score. This season, he’s played 20 matches in the league, scoring three times.

He’s also been capped for his country on 20 occasions.
