He signed a four-year contract with a buyout clause of EUR400 million.

Initially, Arthur insisted he was happy in Barcelona and not ready to move but he changed his decision on Thursday, which paved the way for the deal to be completed.

There's a huge possibility that both these footballers could face each other and their future clubs, during the later stages of the Champions League.

"A definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Arthur Henrique Ramos De Oliveira Melo for a consideration of 72 million euros payable in four financial years". The Italian club will pay 72 million euros, plus 10 million euros in variables.

Cucurella left Barcelona in a bid to get first-team football and joined Eibar in 2018, while he has spent his second full season in the Spanish top flight at José Bordalás' Getafe.

Like Pjanić, the 23-calendar year-outdated will not go to his new club until eventually the finish of the current season.

It has been understood that Barcelona has been hit hard because of the three-month suspension due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. Consequently, they needed to accumulate around 70 million euros to satisfy the current season's budget.

By selling Arthur, the board can register the profits from the transfer immediately before spreading the payments for Pjanic over the length of the 30-year-old's contract.

The Brazil international's move to the Old Lady comes on the same day that club stalwarts Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini signed new one-year deals to remain at the Allianz Stadium. I'll decide if he plays more or less'.
