The trade regarding Miralem Pjanic and Arthur Melo is very close to coming off. The operation seemed impossible because the Brazilian did not want to move to Juventus but now there are reports he has agreed a five year deal with The Old Lady.
Pressure from Barcelona has told, with Arthur fed up of being pushed towards Juve like a mere market good. ESPN say he has agreed a deal with Juve, while there are just a few flecks here and there of the deal to complete.
Sky Italia says they have offered 5.5 million euros per season, triple what he gets at Barcelona. Pjanic comes the other way as part of the deal. Juventus would pay Barcelona 10m euros for the value difference between the players (the Brazilian is 23, the Bosnian 30).
