It was about to drop. once Arthur’s departure to Juventus became official, Barcelona officially announced the signing of Bosnian player Miralem Pjanic. He will cost 60 million and has signed until 2024.
It’s been a hectic few days, but one of the great soaps of the summer has come to an end. Arthur signed for Juventus and Pjanic did the same for Barcelona, as just announced.
Barça and Juve were in a hurry to close the deal. It had to be done before June 30, to balance budgets and fiscal years. The announcement, however, is a mere formality. He will finish the season in Juve, before crossing its way on the Mediterranean with Arthur, as Barcelona confirmed in an official statement.
This Sunday the last steps were taken. Arthur and Pjanic spent their respective medical examinations, both in Turin, under the supervision of a representative of Barça in the case of the Bosnian.
