Arthur Melo Transfer Continues To Make The Headlines
Brazil midfield maestro Arthur Melo has quashed rumours linking him with a move away from LaLiga champions Barcelona.
The 23-year-old has been linked with several clubs in Europe including Serie A champions Juventus, but he insists that he wants to continue his career at the Camp Nou.
There are also reports claiming Los Cules head coach Quique Setien still sees Arthur as a key member of his team.
“There’ll always be rumours, but I’m honestly really clear about the fact that the only option I’m interested in is staying at Barcelona,” he said.
“I’m really sure and relaxed about it. I feel very much at home here and thank the club and the coaching staff for the faith they’ve placed in me. That’s yet another reason that makes me totally certain that all I want to do is stay here.
“The rumoured interest from big clubs is always flattering for anyone - and it’s a good sign - but my mind is totally focused on being here for many years to come.”
