For the first time since the start of the negotiations, Arthur Melo would be ready to move to Juventus if the right proposal were made. Barcelona are seeking to sell the Brazilian to balance their books for the current season before June 30th. Juventus football director Fabio Paratici was the first to contact Arthur to tell him about the Italian club’s desire to sign him. At that moment, the midfielder did not want to leave Barcelona. However, Paratici insisted and, according to reports in Italy. Over the weekend, he offered Arthur twice the salary he earns at Barcelona. Despite the size of this contract proposal, the player nevertheless reiterated his preference for staying in Catalonia. The fact that Arthur was ready to listen to this proposal is an essential step in Juve’s right direction. Which is now confident in securing a deal with him.
Paratici is preparing a new contract proposed for the deal for the 23-year-old player. Which, they hope, will be obtained in the coming days. Arthur, meanwhile, remains patient and relaxes in the situation. He started for Barcelona in their 1-0 victory over Athletic Club on Tuesday and still wants to succeed at Camp Nou. The only difference now is that Arthur Melo is considering a move to Juventus, rather than eliminating it. Now the Turin club must put together an offer that the player finds acceptable to complete the signing. Barcelona and Juventus have already agreed on a transfer fee, which, according to reports, is about €80 million. If Arthur decides to go to the Bianconeri, the next step for Barcelona will be to sign Miralem Pjanic as his replacement.
