FC Barcelona announced that he had reached an agreement with Gremio Porto Alegre for the transfer of Arthur.
On the official site, the Catalans state that in July of this year have the right to exercise the option to buy the midfielder for 21 years.
The eventual transfer will cost Barça 30 million euros, plus another 9 million in various bonuses.
From this moment on, the transfer to Camp Nou of one of the most talented Brazilian players in the new wave is practically a formality.
Formed at Gremio, a team he debuted in 2016 under the leadership of Luiz Felipe Scolari, Arthur quickly became an important piece in the band that won the Brazil Cup, Copa Libertadores and Recopa Sudmaericana.
The Brazilian midfielder was named the best player of the 2017 Copei Libertadores final, won by Gremio against the Argentineans at Lanus with a double win, 1-0 and 2-1.
Even if Barcelona will activate the player’s purchase option in July, there are chances that Arthur will reach Camp Nou just in early 2019, according to Spanish media.
