Barcelona coach Quique Setien admits they ‘discussed’ Arthur Melo’s potential move to Juventus. ‘I don’t want to speculate right now, we still have objectives to achieve.’

It has been widely reported in Italy, Spain and Brazil that the clubs were in agreement to exchange Arthur with Miralem Pjanic, but the Barcelona midfielder blocked everything by refusing the transfer.

They are all still working to convince him to accept the switch, something Setien did not deny in today’s press conference.

They are all still working to convince him to accept the switch, something Setien did not deny in today’s press conference.

“We certainly discussed his future, but not for very long,” said the coach.

“There are many circumstances affecting the transfer market this summer, but the reality right now is that we still have objectives to achieve this season and I will need help from everyone in the squad.

“We are in the running for La Liga and the Champions League. I don’t want to speculate right now, as we have to focus on the current challenges.”
