Barcelona’s decision to sell Arthur to Juventus and bring in Miralem Pjanic from Juventus has reportedly not gone down too well with the dressing room.

According to Cadena SER, the players really aren’t convinced by the transfer and don’t think it was necessary at all. Journalist Jose Alvarez has also reported Barca players are not too happy with the situation.

Reports today suggest Arthur will head to Turin this weekend after Barca’s game with Celta for a medical before finalising his move to the Serie A champions.

The Brazilian will finish the season with Barcelona and then officially become a Juventus player in time for the start of next season.

Quique Setien is likely to be asked about the deal in his pre-match press conference later today so we may get an update on the situation then.
