Arthur flying in for Juventus medical

Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo is expected in Turin later today for his Juventus medical, as he prepares the exchange with Miralem Pjanic.

Multiple sources report the Brazilian will be on Italian soil by tonight, ready to begin tests on Sunday.

In turn, Pjanic is expected in Spain for his medical tomorrow.

The deal was finally agreed over the last couple of days, with Pjanic plus circa €10m going to Barcelona.

Arthur had resisted the idea of leaving Camp Nou, but was finally convinced this was the best move for him.

Even if the paperwork is signed now, Pjanic and Arthur cannot play for their new clubs until the 2020-21 season.

Arthur turns 24 in August and moved to Barcelona from Gremio for €31m in the summer of 2018.

He has made 27 competitive appearances for the Blaugrana this season, contributing four goals and four assists.
