According to reports coming out from Spain, the Serie A giants have been granted the permission to initiate talks with the midfielder.
The reigning Serie A champions have reportedly been given the permission by the Catalan side to negotiate with the player and convince him to a summer move to Turin.
Arthur isn’t the top of the list of players Barcelona want to sell in the summer transfer window, but the financial uncertainty surrounding the club amid the coronavirus crisis and the necessity to raise funds for new signings means they are amenable to the idea of letting him leave.
The 21-year-old is currently on a low salary at the Nou Camp and with Barca unable to meet his wage demands, he is looking for a move elsewhere. Juve can afford to offer him just that because unlike in Spain where players are taxed 48 percent in their first five years, Italy’s highest earners pay only 30 percent in taxes.
The 18-year-old is currently impressing with Uruguayan outfit Penarol in his native Uruguay, though the big sides across Europe have already begun taking an interest in him.
Goal report that apart from Los Blancos and Man City, several Premier League sides are interested in the player’s acquisition, with high-flying Wolves being one of them. Real, though, have stolen a march on their rivals as they already sent a scout to watch the player before the coronavirus lockdown.
Pellistri only signed a new two-year deal with Penarol in February earlier this year, but many expect that he’d be on the move in the coming transfer window. And with several of Europe’s biggest clubs on the hunt, the Uruguayan outfit are confident they can get as much as £8m for the young winger.
As reported earlier by Le Parisien, the French Prime Minister Eduoard Philippe has to announce the country’s ‘deconfinement’ plan that will enter into force from May 12.
The ongoing season of Ligue 1 has be cancelled after the French Prime Minister banned the organizing of games until August. UEFA has given all its member leagues the deadline of August 2 to complete their domestic leagues.
Les Parisien reports that while the French clubs were keen to return to training after May 11 when the current phase of lockdown will end in the country, the government believes that the resumption of football is secondary to other sectors i.e. tourism and catering in the country.
Earlier on, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had suggested that the Ligue 1 season should be cancelled, and that the teams who played in this season’s Champions League (PSG, Lille, Lyon) should automatically play in next season’s Champions League.
The French Football League (LFP) will decide in a meeting next month whether to declare the season null and void or to take the current standings as final to confirm title winners, relegation spots and European places.
