BARCELONA (SPAIN) – Chance in the transfer market deal that should bring Miralem Pjanic to Barcelona in exchange for Arthur and a substantial cash for Juventus.
After the serious injury suffered by de Jong, the blaugrana need to replace him with a player of the same level.
From this point of view, Miralem Pjanic would be the ideal substitute .
At first, Barcelona had not said they were willing to sell Arthur to Juventus but now he is forced to change his strategy.
Now that the Arthur situation has unlocked, the transfer market deal could go through in the next few hours.
Pjanic has always been considered the ideal footballer for Barcelona for his technical qualities and for his way of interpreting the game of ball.
The Juventus midfielder is a geometric footballer who goes very well with the Blaugrana "Tiki Taka".
Juve is in favor of its sale because it needs to make money and also needs a footballer like Arthur.
Bad news for Barcelona .
As reported by the club's official website, midfielder Frankie de Jong, absent from today's training, has remedied an injury to the soleus (muscle that makes up most of the calf) of the right leg.
The Dutchman, who in the past few days had already had problems with muscle fatigue, will be unavailable "for a few weeks".
So the technician Quique Setien finds himself without a pawn that he considers fundamental.
Barcelona is the rival of Rino Gattuso's Napoli in the second leg of the Champions League round of 16, which will be played at the Camp Nou in early August behind closed doors (article source, Ansa ).
