Reports this afternoon claim Juventus and Barcelona are currently ironing out the final details of the Arthur Melo-Miralem Pjanic exchange.
According to Sky Sport Italia and transfer expert Nicolo Schira, a deal has been agreed with Pjanic valued at €60m plus bonuses and Arthur €70m plus bonuses.
Whereas Sky expects Arthur to accept personal terms in ‘no later than two days’, Schira writes the Brazilian is ‘ready’ to give the green light to a five-year contract worth €5.2m a season plus bonuses.
However, the pair will continue with their respective clubs for the remainder of this campaign.
The arrival of Arthur will particularly please Juve boss Maurizio Sarri, who had long wanted a specialist, deep-lying midfielder in his squad.
