Today, the transfer of Arthur will be made official, per ESPN. The Brazilian will travel to Vigo to feature against Celta, and afterward, he can travel to Turin to visit his new team Juventus.

As reported earlier, he will be signing with Juventus under a swap deal which will bring Miralem Pjanic to the Camp Nou. Even though the details haven’t been made official yet, it has been reported that Barcelona will get an extra €10m besides Pjanic.

According to Tuttosport, his flight is already booked, but open to changes with respect to the player’s schedule. Pjanic will take the reverse flight to pass medical tests in Barcelona.

Everyone has some kind of passion. For me, it is FC Barcelona. I started to write stories about the club I support in 2017, and have been lucky enough to be part of such a wonderful team.

This Saturday afternoon, Barcelona will travel to Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan to face Sevilla for the control of the third place in the table. The Andalusians have already proved they are an incredibly tricky opponent so this clash is bound to be a big one once more.

But there is some good news for Ronald Koeman ahead of the Saturday challenge. Barcelona have officially confirmed that Ronald Araujo is once again training with the team. Of course, the centre-back has been out of action for quite some time now and the Catalans have missed him dearly.

He may be still young and developing but the Uruguayan is a true rock in their defence. Having him available should definitely help in the remainder of the season, especially since Gerard Pique is also back.

However, we still don’t know whether Koeman will risk his defensive talisman right from the start this Saturday, even if he is given the green light. Sometimes, throwing players into the fire immediately, especially for such a huge game, can be counterproductive.

Araujo is surely eager to play but Koeman needs to think long-term when making this tricky decision. Despite the opposition and the importance of the match, maybe it wouldn’t be that bad to start him on the bench.

After all, he can always be substituted in if the team requires some extra solidity in the latter parts of the clash. Hopefully, however, it doesn’t come to that.

Either way, this is a must-win game and the team better be ready to face the challenge.
