Barcelona need cash for transfer purposes in the next window and names are coming up in the media related to Barca.
‘Mundo Deportivo’ assured on their cover on Wednesday that clubs such as Inter and Tottenham have a big interest in the Brazilian player Arthur.
The midfielder hasn’t convinced, and despite his reiterated wishes to stay at Barca, he could be one of the players that leaves to make room for new signings.
The Catalan newspaper stressed that Arthur hasn’t convinced neither because of his constant injuries nor because of his lack of consistency. And they insinuated that his extra-sporting life has not helped to trust him in the future either.
On top of that, Arthur occupies one of the non-EU spots and Barca wish to free up one of them to sign Neymar or Lautaro Martínez, the club’s big objectives.
Furthermore, in the centre of the park, there is an overbooking and the Brazilian midfielder could be the player that Barca get a more profitable deal from.
Although it’s too early to tell, it seems that Arthur Melo will not be able to make the career at Barca that was expected of him. And he’s not going to be the replacement for Xavi that was predicted.
