The midfielder has returned from Brazil and wanted to support the team in their last-16 clash against Gennaro Gattuso’s side but was told to go home, according to reports.
Over at Sport the word is that Arthur has tested negative but was refused entry to the Camp Nou because access to the ground is limited and he was not on the accredited list.
Guillermo Amor was asked about Arthur and offered the following explanation.
“Arthur did not come when he had to, he did not pass the coronavirus tests with UEFA, so that’s why he was not on the list to be here today. We’ll see what happens. What counts is today’s game and then Arthur’s case will be discussed.”

The 23-year-old is back in Barcelona for talks with Eric Abidal after failing to report for training and refusing to play for the club again before his move to Juventus.
Arthur is due to arrive in Turin at the end of the campaign and will be working under new manager Andrea Pirlo who replaced Maurizio Sarri on Saturday.
