Juventus chief football officer Fabio Paratici has been asked about rumors regarding a possible swap between Miralem Pjanic and Arthur this summer and says his team are often talking to Barcelona.

Reports have claimed that Pjanic is pretty keen on a move to the Camp Nou, but Arthur does not really want to go which is why the proposed deal has stalled.

Barcelona are also said to be in a hurry to offload players before the end of June, although Paratici reckons his team are not in a rush to complete a deal with the Catalan giants.

“We often talk to Barcelona, but at this moment both team are playing important games and we decided to let this period pass. It’s not a matter of dates but of agreement between the parties and the player’s convictions.”

It seems that Barcelona are willing to let Arthur go this summer but Juve still look to have some work to do to convince the midfielder it’s a good idea to leave La Liga and head to Serie A.
