Quique Setien and Arthur were spotted engaging in a pretty intense chat in Barcelona training on Friday.
The Barcelona boss spoke about Arthur in his pre-match press conference after a week of intense subject that culminated with reports claiming he will be sold to Juventus.
Setien insisted the midfielder was in an abnormal situation but said he he would be part of his squad for the trip to Celta Vigo.
Interestingly he also added: “The club haven’t told me that Arthur is going to leave, neither has he left.”
Setien then headed off for Barcelona’s final training session before they headed off to Vigo and was captured in deep conversation with Arthur.

It’s not clear what they spoke about although Arthur’s body language is pretty interesting to watch.
AS are reporting that Setien spoke to his midfielder just to check on his “state of mind amid the current situation” and the Brazilian insisted he’s ready for the Celta game.
