Brazilian international Arthur Melo who looked like a promising successor of Andrés Iniesta was sold to Juventus from Barcelona after the midfielder agreed a five-year contract with the Italian champions. The transfer included a twin negotiation between the clubs which involves Bosnia midfielder Miralem Pjanic and a fee of 70 million euros.
The swap deal between both the clubs has only benefited the Italians since they have received a 23-year-old with immense potential in replacement for Miralem Pjanic who is 30-years-old and has entered the final few years of his career. Is this another foolishness by the board at Barcelona to let go off a promising talent for a career ending player? Does this even make sense?
