Arthur took to social media on Monday after his move from Barcelona to Juventus was confirmed with a message to supporters of both clubs.
The Brazilian has agreed a five-year deal with the Serie A champions and will cost €72 million plus €10 million in variables.
Here’s what he’s had to say:
“Thank you for the huge effort Juventus have made to bring me to their club. I know I’m joining a great club and we have a lot of challenges that we can achieve together.”
“For now, we must focus on the present and the many important objectives we have at Barcelona. I’m going to give my all until the end: for my teammates and all the fans. Thank you so much for the support. See you soon.”
Ringrazio per il grande interesse da parte della @juventusfc per l'integrazione alla società. Sò di andare ad appartenere ad un grande club; ci aspettano molte sfide da superare insieme ai bianconeri. pic.twitter.com/SN6ud64xie— Arthur Melo (@arthurhromelo) June 29, 2020
Arthur was pictured speaking to his Barcelona team-mates at the start of training this morning where it seems like he broke the news of his move to Juve.
The midfielder will see out the season with Quique Setien’s side and is in the squad for tomorrow’s La Liga clash with Atletico Madrid.
