The initial reports suggested that Arthur would join Juventus as part of a swap deal which would see Miralem Pjanic join Barcelona.

Arthur, a Brazilian worldwide, only joined Barca from Gremio in 2018 and was hailed as a future star for the club, with many tipping him as the long-term successor to Xavi Hernandez in central midfield.

FC Barcelona and Juventus FC have reached an agreement for the transfer of player Arthur Melo.

In a statement, Juventus said they had signed Arthur for "72 million euros payable in four years".

"He is a player until the last game of the season".

Juventus confirmed the move Monday afternoon, with the 23-year-old signing a five-year contract in deal said to be worth €72million plus a bonus of 10 million.

In principle, the idea is for Arthur to finish the season at Barcelona.

The two veterans will remain with the Serie A leaders, who are chasing a ninth consecutive Scudetto this season, until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

Pjanic joined Juventus from Roma in 2016 as he produced 22 goals and 36 assists in 171 appearances.

It is reported Juve's 30-year-old Bosnia midfielder Miralem Pjanic will move in the opposite direction.

This is being done in a way - prior to June 30 - so that the transaction can be in this year's accounts, which was essential for Barcelona as they look to balance their books.
