Juventus and Barcelona are closing in on completing a swap deal involving Miralem Pjanic and Arthur. The two clubs have already reached an agreement, with the Bosnian valued at €60 million and the Brazilian at €70 million. The gap between the valuations of the player, previously of €15 million, has been reduced through negotiations, and is now of €10 million.
The Bianconeri, however, are yet to agree on terms with the former Gremio midfielder. The Brazilian is in fact trying to drag the negotiations on his wages as much as possible, in order to get the best possible salary out of the discussion with the Serie A club. Arthur has however accepted that Barcelona's will is to sell him, so he should say the final 'yes' to Juventus so that the deal could exit the deadlock that is currently in and presumably be completed in the next 48 hours.
