Arthur’s mother has hit out at Barcelona for their treatment of the Juventus target. “Now they’re starting to pick holes…”
Arthur is expected in Turin for a medical with Juve tomorrow after a swap deal was agreed, which will see Miralem Pjanic head to Barca in the opposite direction.
When asked about the Brazilian at a press conference yesterday, Blaugrana boss Quique Setien suggested he had failed to live up to expectations at Camp Nou.
That prompted Lucia Melo, the player’s mother, to tweet: “My God, now they’re starting to pick holes in the player.”
Sky Sport Italia, meanwhile, reports Pjanic – like Arthur – could fly out to Catalonia for his medical on Sunday.
