Rejects As He Looks Forward To Playing For

Arthur Melo has refused to rejoin Barcelona teammates for the remainder of the season. The 23-year-old traveled to Brazil after his coach granted the players break. Arthur will move to Juventus once this season wraps up in a matter of weeks with Pjanic joining Barca in a swap deal.

Barcelona may have to play the rest of the season without Arthur Melo after his refusal to return to Camp Nou from his home country. The Brazilian midfielder has already completed a move to Juventus this summer with Miralem Pjanic moving the other way in a swap deal. Juve only added a sum of €10 million in bonuses to the deal that saw the 23-year-old join the Italian League champions.
