Midfielder Arthur Melo from Barcelona thanked Juventus for their strong interest in him. He believes Juventus to be a nice club, and feels he will be welcome there.
“Thank you Juventus, for your great interest in me,” wrote the Brazilian on. “I know I’m going to a great club; many challenges await us, to be overcome together.”
Arthur completed a move to Juve yesterday, with Miralem Pjanic moving to Barca in return. Pjanic’s transaction could rise to €82 m.
Meanwhile, the 23-year-old promised to ‘give it all’ for the rest of the season to his new club:
“Now I’m focused on the present. I have important objectives to reach with Barcelona and I’ll keep going until the end of the season, giving everything for my teammates and all the fans.
“Thank you so much for the support! See you tomorrow [referring to Tuesday’s game against Atletico Madrid].”
