Welcome to Camp Nou, Arthur Melo: FC Barcelona
Arthur Melo has been grabbed by his longtime chaser FC Barcelona for €40 million. But Arthur would not join Catalans until January 2019 as per the deal between the two clubs. Gremio will receive €30 million fees and will receive €10 million as add-ons. FC Barcelona has signed the 21-year-old midfielder on a five-year deal.
The long-awaited deal which was due from December now came to a halt as the Gremio’s president Romildo Bolzan stated that the deal would be completed as soon as possible earlier this Wednesday.
This move would now stop the speculation of the signing of French star and Atletico Madrid frontman, Antoine Griezmann. This move will now expedite the departure of Andre Gomes. Andre Gomes was getting offers from Jose Mourinho’s side Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
