Juventus and Barcelona are feeling increasingly positive about the Pjanic and Arthur swap deal. The Brazilian midfielder is giving more positive signs about a possible move to the Bianconeri, however, he is yet to say the final 'yes' that will pave the way for the two club to set out the details of the deal.
Juventus offer wages for €5 million per year after taxes, more than double the sum that he is currently earning at the Spanish club. On Wednesday there could be new developments since Juventus played today against Bologna, while on Tuesday Barcelona will be focused on Tuesday's game against Athletic Club (with Arthur included in the matchday squad). On the flipside, Barcelona would not have to struggle much to agree terms with Pjanic.
The clubs are yet to reach a total agreement. Should Arthur give the final greenlight to the deal, Barcelona and Juventus will enter further discussions to reduce the gap between demand and offer. The two club value Arthur and Pjanic respectively at 80 million and 70 million, with the Blaugrana asking for a sum in excess of ten million to accept a swap deal, given that Arthur (born in 1996) is six years younger than Pjanic and has significantly lower wages than the Bosnian. However, for financial reasons, the clubs will have to reach an agreement before the 30th June, despite Paratici stating otherwise in the pre-match interview earlier today.
