Arthur has once again responded to rumors linking him with a move away from Barcelona and insists he wants to stay at the Camp Nou.

The Brazilian has already told Gazzetta dello Sport he’s not interested in a move to Inter Milan and has now come out in response to rumors of a possible move to Juventus.

Here’s what he’s had to say:

“There is always speculation but my idea is clear. The only option that interests me is staying at Barcelona. The supposed interest of big clubs is always flattering and a positive sign, but my mind is on playing for Barcelona for many years.

“Barça is where I have always wanted to be and I want to be a Barca player for a long time, above any other question. Every day I feel more comfortable and well here, in the team, in the club and in the city. I also love both the people and the culture here, I feel a lot of support from the fans.

“I am 100% focused on working and that we play again when possible because I really want to continue growing here and to fight for more titles.”

Arthur was on the front page of Mundo Deportivo on Tuesday with a report that Barcelona had given Juventus permission to talk to the midfielder.

Yet his latest comments shows Arthur does not seem interested in going anywhere, although it remains to be seen whether that will be enough to end the speculation over his future.
