Arthur will fly to Juventus for a medical after Barcelona’s clash with Celta on Saturday after finally agreeing a deal with the Serie A champions, according to multiple reports.

The Brazilian is part of the squad for today’s game at Balaidos but won’t head back to Barcelona afterwards but will travel to Turin instead.

Sport are reporting he will officially become a Juventus player tomorrow, although he’ll finish the season with Barca, after agreeing the “contract of his life.”

Arthur is due to sign a five-year deal with Juventus and will triple his salary with the Serie A champions. Juve will pay Barca €70m for Arthur and then get €60m back when Miralem Pjanic heads the other way.

ESPN are also reporting it’s a done deal and will be announced over the weekend.
