Arthur completed a transfer to Juve yesterday, in a deal that could rise to €82m, with Miralem Pjanic heading to Barca in exchange.

"The Italian club will pay 72 million euros, plus 10 million euros in variables", Barcelona said in a statement.

Miralem Pjanic has been included in Juventus' squad to face Genoa on Tuesday, a day after his impending move to Barcelona was confirmed. The purchase value may increase of maximum 10 million euros on achieving given conditions during the course of the contract.

Arthur joined Barcelona from Brazilian club Grêmio in 2018, profitable the league title and Tremendous Cup in his debut period. He signed a five-year contract with the eight-time defending Serie A champion.

The Bosnia and Herzegovina worldwide joined Juventus from Roma in 2016, helping the Bianconeri win the Italian Serie A title three times.

That's less effective than many of today's vaccines but independent experts say that would be a good start against the virus. Dr Fauci said Florida, Arizona, Texas and California are the four states now being affected the most by the pandemic.

Like Pjanić, the 23-calendar year-outdated will not go to his new club until eventually the finish of the current season. He was brought up in Luxembourg and initially made his name in French football with Metz and then Lyon.

Arthur Melo, the Brazilian midfielder touted to be the next Xavi, has been signed by Juventus.

Barcelona said it paid EUR60 million for Pjanic, with the possibility of another EUR5 million in bonuses.

Setien said in a press conference on Monday the playmaker had promised to give his all for the rest of the season as Barcelona look to make up a two-point gap on Real Madrid at the top of the table.
