Barcelona midfielder Arthur has become the centre of attention for many of Europe’s top clubs. At the Camp Nou, they are surprised by the interest from elsewhere but the current plan is to keep hold of the Brazilian. The only way this would change is if someone offered them a deal too good to refuse.
Arthur has been in and out of the Barça team mainly due to his fitness issues.
However Quique Setien, like Ernesto Valverde before him, are admirers of the talented midfielder and believe he has a future at the club.
His range of passing, the way he controls the tempo and can play both defensively and offensively mean he has a unique style set.
Inter Milan, alongside various Premier League sides, have all tentatively enquired about Arthur’s situation at Barça.
The response was that the midfielder wouldn’t be included in any swap deals and that he’d cost at least €60m. Arthur is still young and has huge potential. After a period of adaptation, there’s hope that we’ll see the best of the midfielder next season.
Arthur is also one of the lowest-paid members of the current squad. Barça intend to hand him a new contract once football resumes.
