We told ourselves that football would not surprise us anymore. Barcelona and Juventus will exchange the middle midfielders. Barcelona confirmed Arthur is leaving and Pjanic is coming.
Juve pays 82 million euros for Arthur. Barcelona pays 65 million for Miralema Pjanic (we already include various variables in both values). Barcelona and Juventus know each other quite well, although they measured the most important match of the season for the last time in 2015. Now they said they would get along.
Juventus Coach needed someone who next to Rodrigo Bentancura would finally bring quality in the middle zone. Khedira and Matuidi have long been farewell and Pjanic was also there. The same Pjanic who was considered the man who would benefit the most from Sarri’s arrival alongside Dybala. Meanwhile, we have the impression that the guy is in a permanent crisis.
Barcelona have confirmed the signing of Miralem Pjanic from Juventus, with Arthur heading in the direction.

However, Arthur is to come to Juventus, who must prove that everything is right in his head. He really thought he might be the new Xavi. Did he becomes one? Of course not. He did not become an indisputable leader, he did not permanently approach the level that he presented for Luis Enrique even Busquets and Rakitic.
Juventus gained a perspective man – Arthur is 6 years younger than Pjanic. 24 springs versus 30 springs – you can see the differences for yourself. Pjanic has a chance to prove that he did not become a depleted player, that he did not grow old quickly.
Arthur comes to a new environment and if he shows the same quality as at the beginning in Barcelona, it will be a sign of a better tomorrow in the second line of Juventus.

We know Barcelona needs money. But was Arthur really the first to shoot? Don’t you think Dembele should start cleaning? Should Coutinho Clean-Up? Nothing disagrees about the Barcelona team, and more recently people get the United syndrome they are learning to play football.
It doesn’t work on Messi, hence this and not another item on the table. Barcelona is lost. But he has money and glory to the businessman Bartomeu. He spent half a billion and now has 17 million in profit.
