Miralem Pjanic will play for Barcelona for four years. On the other hand, Arthur Mello has become a Juventus player for the next five years.
Miralem Pjanic will continue his career in Barcelona, and Arthur – in Juventus. This decision has just been given official status.
So, the Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic is officially a Barcelona player. In exchange for the 30-year-old player, Juventus will receive 60 million euros (which may increase by another 5 million).
Pjanic will sign a 4-year contract. He is Barça’s first serious acquisition of the summer transfer window.
The Brazilian’s position initially hampered these transfers. Arthur did not want to leave Barcelona. Arthur will stay in Barcelona until the end of the season.
It has since been agreed that Juventus will pay € 72 million (which may be added to € 10 million) in exchange for the young Brazilian. Arthur has played in a total of 72 matches for Barcelona. Arthur Mello will be a Juventus player for the next five years.
Miralem Pjanic’s ransom is now 400 million euros. The Tuzla-born midfielder is the second Bosnian in Barcelona’s history after Meho Kodro.
Under UEFA law, clubs have the right to reveal money from transfers in the revenues at once formally, and to distribute the money spent on transfers in subsequent years partially. This means that officially, by June 30, both clubs will record revenues of 60-70 million, and the outflows will be written off in the following years and thus cover the losses incurred due to the virus for UEFA’s financial documentation.
