Barcelona’s Arthur ‘turns down Juventus offer’

Barcelona midfielder Arthur has reportedly rejected a €5m (£4.5m)-a-year contract offer from Juventus.

The 23-year-old’s future has been the subject of much speculation in recent weeks, with Juve allegedly determined to bring him to Turin ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

According to Marca, the Old Lady agreed a deal with Barca and put a €5m (£4.5m)-a-year offer on the table for the midfielder, but Arthur signalled that he was not interested in a move.

The Brazil international joined the Spanish champions from Gremio in the summer of 2018 and has made 70 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring four times and providing six assists.

Arthur has featured on 26 occasions for the Catalan giants this term but has found it difficult to hold down a regular starting spot, featuring in the first XI on just 13 occasions in La Liga.

Barca are next in league action against Athletic Bilbao at Camp Nou on Tuesday, while Juve will resume their 2019-20 Serie A campaign away to Bologna on Monday.
