Barcelona midfielder Arthur, who has already agreed to join Juventus in the summer, has posted a defiant message on social media, possibly aimed at those who question whether he is fully committed to his current club.

“A passion that will never be taken from me,” Arthur wrote, alongside a heart emoji and a ball emoji, and a picture of the player in his garden controlling a ball.

Cameras had caught Arthur yawning during Barcelona’s loss to Osasuna, an action which many fans criticized.

Arthur missed Barcelona’s last match with an ankle injury, at a time when the Catalans were only able to field a minimal number of substitutes.

It remains to be seen whether Arthur will play any more for Barcelona, or whether he has already kicked his last ball as a member of the Catalan giant.
