I had written in my previous article, the Arthur-Pjanic transfer was all done and was just waiting for official confirmation from both clubs. Now the clubs have confirmed the transfers.
Barcelona welcomed the Bosnian midfielder, Miralem Pjanic to the club. They finally announced on Monday that Miralem Pjanic will join the club at the end of the season from Juventus.
The 30-year-old has signed a four-year deal at the Camp Nou for a fee of €60 million plus €5m in variables. He has a buyout clause of €400m.
Pjanic has said a quick hello on Twitter to the Barcelona community: “I am very happy, I will give my all for this club. See you soon!”
Barcelona has also confirmed that Arthur will be moving in the other direction for a fee of €72m plus €10m in variables. He has signed a five-year deal with Juventus.
Arthur has conveyed a message on Twitter to both the Barcelona and Juventus fans. He wrote: “Thank you for the huge effort Juventus have made to bring me to their club. I know I’m joining a great club and we have a lot of challenges that we can achieve together.”
“For now, we must focus on the present and the many important objectives we have in Barcelona. I’m going to give my all until the end: for my teammates and all the fans. Thank you so much for the support. See you soon.”
Ringrazio per il grande interesse da parte della @juventusfc per l'integrazione alla società. Sò di andare ad appartenere ad un grande club; ci aspettano molte sfide da superare insieme ai bianconeri. pic.twitter.com/SN6ud64xie— Arthur Melo (@arthurhromelo) June 29, 2020
Pjanic and Arthur will both spend the rest of the season with their respective clubs trying to win silverware. Barcelona are 2 points behind Real Madrid while Juventus are on top of the Serie A table. Both the clubs will also participate in the Champions League in August. After that, they will complete their moves to their new clubs in time for the 2020-21 season.
