ARTHUR has jetted into Turin to complete his £72.5million transfer to Juventus from Barcelona.
The midfielder underwent a medical at Juve before dotting the is and crossing the ts on his big-money move from LaLiga.
Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic is all set to move the other way for £63m, according to reports in Italy.
A video emerged of Brazilian Arthur, 23, stepping off the plane following his flight from Spain.
The Italians have been chasing the player all summer.
It means Juve boss Maurizio Sarri will no longer be pursuing Chelsea’s Jorginho.
Pjanic will complete his medical in Turin before flying to Barcelona to complete his transfer.
Both players have agreed personal terms so, barring any dramas in the medicals, everything should be sorted for the deals to be completed.
The duo will complete their campaigns at Juve and Barca respectively before starting next season at their new clubs.
Barca are trying to save cash after being hit hard by the coronavirus outbreak and subsequent football shutdown.
The two clubs had been wrangling over the fee for Pjanic but it is believed that is now settled.
