Arthur Melo is speculated to move away from Serie A giants Juventus this summer. The Brazilian has had a really tough time at Juventus after his move from Barcelona.
It was Bartomeu who decided to let Arthur go because of his high wages. The midfielder was not willing to discuss a salary reduction. This saw him move to Juventus in a cash-plus player swap. Miralem Pjanic came to Barcelona that summer.
Arthur’s move was a really good one for Juventus. The club was aware of the Brazilian’s talent and saw him as the long-term investment in their inconsistent midfield. Meanwhile, they also managed to let go of Miralem Pjanic. This move was a win-win situation for Juventus and a bad one by Barcelona. He was the long-term replacement for Xavi Hernandez according to many. But Arthur never had the consistency nor he was able to showcase much of his skills
Now with no future at Juventus, Arthur is plotting a move back to La Liga. Valencia has emerged as one of the clubs emerging as a potential destination for Arthur. Arthur feels that he is much more comfortable in La Liga and Serie A football did not suit him at all. The Former Barca man is eager to return to Spain and Valencia might just be the ones needing him. The Spanish club is under huge debt and with players leaving, they need some serious firepower to compete in La Liga.
