Football: Juventus agree £72.5m Arthur deal with Barcelona

Juventus have agreed to a £ 72.5 million deal with Barcelona to sign Brazilian international Arthur Melo, according to Sky Sports.
The Club accepted an offer worth £ 72.5 million ($ 91 million) for the midfielder, while controversies continue on Juve star Miralem Pjanic, who is wanted at the Camp Nou.

According to Sky Sports News, Sarri wants to build his midfield around him in a very similar way to Jorginho’s in Napoli and Chelsea.
They also offered the 23-year-old more wages than his current contract at Barça.

According to Sky Italy, Juve values the 30-year-old at £ 63.4m (€ 70m), but Sky Sports News has been told that Barcelona doesn’t feel like it’s worth just £ 9m (€ 10m) less than Arthur.

The two clubs are also said to conclude on completing the transfer before June 30, but Juve’s sporting director Fabio Paratici has denied it.
