Arthur’s agent opens door to Juventus January exit

by | Dec 11, 2021 11:13

Arthur’s agent admits the Brazilian midfielder could leave Juventus in January: ‘He is not suited to Allegri’s football.’

The former Barcelona star joined Juventus in a €76m move in 2020. Miralem Pjanic moved to the Nou Camp for €65m, but the Bianconeri must sell Arthur for at least €50m in January to avoid a capital loss.

The 25-year-old has played just eight games under Massimiliano Allegri this term and did not travel with the team to Venice for today’s game because he was late for yesterday’s training session at Continassa.

Arthur was picked by [Maurizio] Sarri and his characteristics are not suited to Allegri’s football,” his agent Federico Pastorello told Tuttosport.

“It’s a shame to keep a player like him on the bench, Brazil coach Tite has told Arthur that he has a spot in the team, but he must play with his club. We don’t rule anything out for January. Spain, but maybe even Italy or England.”

Arthur’s struggles at Juventus continue

Last month, Pastorello finalised agreements with Arthur and Federico Bernardeschi, becoming their new agent.

Bernardeschi is getting regular playing time at Juventus, but his contract in Turin expires in the summer.

“There has always been a special relationship with Bernardeschi. He has a beautiful soul and personality, just think about the penalty kicks he took at the Euros,” said Pastorello.

“He is a great professional, he has great eating habits, like Lukaku or Ronaldo, with whom he had a great relationship.

Agent: ‘Lukaku will return to Italy, he spoke to Ronaldo…’

“Federico strongly wanted to join Juventus from Fiorentina, so we can’t exclude his stay, but for now, there haven’t been contacts with the club.”

Pastorello also discussed Romelu Lukaku’s future, saying that the Belgian striker will return to Italy one day.



    Another disaster. Maybe Juve can get a decent fee from the desperate oil club Newcastle in January for him and Ramsey?

    Not sure which news is better.. Arthur possibly leaving in January or the club has not contacted useless Bernardeschi for a renewal.

    Arthur skills is beyond discussion, he is way above all of our midfielders, by far.

    It’s usually the coach duty to mold gifted technical abilities into the system of play

    But allegri was always bad at this, he had issues with players like Pirlo before, players who dictate the game and run the show.

    he needs playing time and he needs minutes on his legs,.

    Stop comparing Arthur, to bums like ramsey who had his chances and failed over and over,,, its a crime.

    Jman I am sorry but you are way off base on this one. Arthur may have talent but it will never shine in a Juve shirt b/c he never wanted to come to us.

    Sarri along with our inept management team of Agnelli and Nedved begged and pleaded with him. We overpaid for him He was a bench player for Barca at the time. Some say he was young but Barca is one if the few big clubs that know how to bring youth into the team.

    Arthur does not want to be here. Why else does he consistently break simple team rules. He shows little to no heart in the games he has played.

    We will be lucky to get anywhere near 50m for him in the current covid economy. Whatever we get we should take and try to move on.

    He was late for Training and is punished accordingly. Non-story.
