Arthur's long-awaited photo with Barcelona's badge will happen soon. The Brazilian midfielder has had to be patient before he can be presented as a Barca player. SPORT explained that he had beaurocratic difficulties with his work permit that set him back, but now they have been resolved and he will land soon in the Catalan capital.
The player will fly to Barcelona from Porto Alegre via Lisbon on Tuesday night and on Wednesday, when he arrives, he will likely have his official photo wit the club badge. Barca will pay a little more than 30m euros for the Gremio man, who will be the first signing of the season. The creative midfielder will reinforce the midfield after Iniesta and Paulinho's exits.
He was going to join the team in January but it was decided he should come earlier. Arthur will soon be here.
