In a decisive response to some clubs wanting to take advantage of his services, Barcelona midfielder Arthur Melo said he wanted to stay with Barça.

According to press reports, Arthur has entered the agendas of some of the major European teams, Juventus having expressed its wish to reach an agreement with the 23-year-old player.

“The interest of the big clubs makes me happy, but I think of one thing, it is to play here for several years”, writes the Italian newspaper “Gazzetta Dello Sport”, quoting the Brazilian international.

Arthur, who has played 20 caps for Brazil, joined Barcelona in 2018 from Gremio and helped his club win the 26th Spanish League.

It should be noted that the Spanish League and the Italian League stopped in the light of the Coronavirus pandemic, while the officials of the two football federations are hoping to resume competitions soon.
