Arthur Melo is delighted to join Italian giants Juventus and he is already having his dream come true playing alongside legendary Cristiano Ronaldo.

The impressive midfielder was swapped with Pjanic who moved the other way, but has gone into self-isolation after testing positive for the dreaded coronavirus immediately he arrived Barcelona.

While the Messi debacle continues in Barcelona, Arthur had in 2019 disclosed how Messi helped him to settle at Barcelona and claimed that the Argentine is the greatest.

He told Globoesporte: "Honestly I didn't expect it. He's a guy I admire and, in my opinion and many other people's, he's the best player in history."

Meanwhile, Liverpool midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum has reportedly agreed to terms to join Barcelona this summer.
