Arthur's situation at Barça very delicate after Juventus transfer

Setien has suggested he won't play often now he's signed for Juventus

Setién: La situación de Arthur no es la misma de antes | FC Barcelona

Arthur only has a little while left with Barcelona after signing a contract to join Juventus last summer. He has played just five minutes in the last three games and none since the move to Italy was announced. He was an unused substitute against Atletico Madrid and Villarreal.

Barça coach Quique Setien was clear on Tuesday when asked about Arthur's lack of minutes, suggesting the Brazilian midfielder may not play much between now and the end of the campaign. He will be available for selection for the final four league games and the Champions League. 

"His situation is not exactly the same as before," Setien said on Tuesday. "He's motivated and working hard, but then I have to pick the team based on the tactics, the opposition, and on many more things.

"You know he has signed a contract with another team, so the situation is different, I don't need to explain that. But he's committed until the final game of the season."
